An unregistered Toyota Camry car hit two hawkers in Akure, Ondo State, killing one and leaving another badly injured, witnesses told NAN on Saturday.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) boss in Ondo State, Ezekiel SonAllah, also confirmed the killing.

He said the overspeeding vehicle rammed into the hawkers on Friday along Airport Road, Oba-Ile.

The sector commander said the driver of the vehicle ran away without reporting to the law enforcement agencies.

”The corpse of the dead victim has been deposited in the morgue while the injured person has been taken to the hospital for treatment,” he said

Mr SonAllah urged motorists to obey traffic rules and avoid overspeeding in the interest of their lives and those of other road users.

The two hawkers were selling mobile phone accessories, witnesses said.
