This ghastly auto accident occurred right before me when a reckless driver drove pass my vehicle on high speed while making a call along Tombia – Amassoma road, Bayelsa State dis evening. To my greatest surprise, the reckless and irresponsible driver came out of the vehicle uninjured but leaving his passenger unconscious and the other vehicle driver with a broken leg.
