Hand Break Failure Causes Accident On OAU Campus (Photos)
The failure of the parking break also known as the hand break of a car has resulted in an accident on the road linking White House building to the Hezekiah Oluwasanmi Library of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.
According to an eye witness account, the car which was just parked on the road linking Department of Dramatic Arts and Faculty of Law buildings by a woman started to speed backward heading towards the Students' Union building. The owner of the car started to shout to alert passerby to be wary of the car which was no longer in control.
"When the women stepped out of the vehicle, the car was just speeding with its back on this road(road linking White House building to the Hezekiah Oluwasanmi Library) from that Dramatic Arts area. This woman(owner of the car) was screaming that everyone should leave the way. When it got to this point(accident spot), the car climbed up and stopped. She(car owner and driver) said the car's hand break was the cause." an eye witness told our reporter.
The accident which occurred at about 11:20am on Sunday morning attracted passerby who were returning from the Sunday service appreciating God that no casualty was recorded. The OAU Security also known as Crackers came some few minutes after the incidence to see what happened and interrogate the owner of the car. Every effort by our correspondent to speak to the woman who owns the car proved abortive as she refuses to speak.
