“The Sienna  saloon was on high speed and on getting close to Nowa junction, as he  was trying to negotiate from a bend the car suddenly lost control and hit an oncoming vehicle. Five persons in the Sienna saloon car died on a spot,” the source said.

A staff of the Federal Road Safety Commission in the state who volunteered comment on condition of anonymity said the five who died had been taken to a morgue.
