A petroleum tanker laden with fuel, Wednesday evening, has crashed on the popular Udu bridge along sawmill harbor market in Udu local government area of Delta state.
Although there were no reports of any casualties, but the incident has caused palpable fears in the area.
The cause of the tanker’s fall has been attributed to break failure.
Motorists plying the bridge have resorted to alternative routes as the fallen tanker has caused heavy gridlock, knocking off parts of the dilapidated rails of the bridge.
Meanwhile, men of the Delta state fire service have been stationed at the scene to forestall any possible fire outback as some residents were busy scooping fuel gushing out of the tanker.
