Four people have been killed in an accident involving a Toyota Sienna and a tricycle in along the Yenagoa-Oporoma road in Bayelsa State.

The accident occurred on Monday evening when the Sienna veered off its lane and crashed into the tricycle which had passengers on board.

Witnesses narrated that the Sienna was heading towards Oporoma while the tricycle was returning to Yenagoa.

The casualties were the tricycle driver and three of his passengers, while the occupants of the Sienna were unharmed.

Residents said heavy rainfall and poor visibility, along the road with a bend corner known for accidents, contributed to the crash.


Also, the state’s 7pm tricycle operation ban might have led to the tricycle driver rushing to avoid penalties.
