Accidents are common on Nigeria’s poorly maintained roads, caused by reckless driving, speeding, and disregard for traffic rules.

The accident occurred late Sunday at Dinyar Madiga village, 85
kilometres (52 miles) from Kano, the state capital, said Zubairu Mato of
the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).

“A total of 19 people died in the accident involving four vehicles, including two buses and two cars,” Mato said, adding that seven others were seriously injured.

“The speeding vehicles collided while trying to dodge potholes,” he said.

In April, 19 wedding guests were killed in nearby Jigawa state when
their overloaded bus skidded off the road and crashed after a tyre
burst.
