The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), in Cross River state has confirmed a lone accident that killed a woman in Calabar on Sunday September 18, 2022.

The middle-aged woman was allegedly in a hot pursuit of her husband who was in the company of his mistress when the incident occurred.

The Sector Commander of FRSC Cross River State, Maikano Hassan who spoke with press men on Monday morning confirmed the accident and said the incident was caused by over speeding.

According to him, the accident involving a Toyota Highlander which occurred on the Muritala Mohammed Highway in Calabar claimed the life of the lone female driver who veered off the road into a ditch by the road.

His words: “Though the woman was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, she was said to have died a few minutes later due to the injury sustained from the incident.”

The woman it is alleged, was in hot pursuit of her husband who was said to be with a “side chick” (girlfriend) in his car when she lost control of her vehicle, killing herself as a result.

Eyewitnesses narrated how the woman sighted her husband leaving SPAR shopping Mall with an unidentified lady.

She tried unsuccessfully to block her husband’s car with the Toyota Highlander she was driving in, but the man sped off with his vehicle into the Murtala Muhammed highway, which prompted his wife to launch the pursuit.

The woman, in a bid to outrun her husband, lost control of her vehicle, veered off the road, and slammed the vehicle, headlong, into a tree, damaging the vehicle beyond repairs and also killing herself, eyewitnesses confirmed.

The husband, it was further gathered, returned to the scene immediately he established knowledge of the wife’s accident and was part of the rescue team that tried to save her life.

No statement confirming the identity of the couple have been established as of the time of this report.
