A tanker said to be carrying gas moments ago fell along the ever- busy Enugu-Abakaliki road and caught fire.

A witness told our correspondent the tanker seemed to have suffered brake failure as it suddenly lost control and veered into the embankment dividing the road.

“As it hit the embankment, it turned to the side spilling some of its contents, which caught fire but not before the driver and conductor escaped to safety,” the witness said.

The fire was still raging at the time of this report as all efforts by the state fire service to put it out have not been successful.

The fire caused traffic gridlock on the expressway as vehicles had to look for alternative routes in or out of the city.
