A family of eight traveling home for the New Year celebration has died in an auto crash at the Amanwozuzu junction in the Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo state.

The incident which happened around 3 pm on Friday has caused anxiety in the area.

Our correspondent who visited the scene of the accident gathered that the father of the family who was conveying his wife and children in a Sienna vehicle ran into a stationary truck carrying rods.

Eyewitnesses and police officers on the rescue mission said the rod pierced the bodies of the victims and all of them died on the spot, noting that the vehicle was broken to bring out the lifeless bodies of the family members.

As of the time of filing this report, policemen from the Ikeduru Local Government Area Division had deposited the bodies in a morgue.
