The state FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Joel Dagwa, told NAN that the accident which occurred on Friday involved an articulated vehicle without a registration number and a bus with registration SHA 683 XA.
He said that nine people were involved in the accident, but three died while six sustained various degrees of injury.
“We have deposited the corpses at Federal Medical Centre Bida,’’ Dagwa said.
He blamed the incident on speeding and dangerous overtaking.
Dagwa said the corps would continue to monitor road users to guard against dangerous driving in all the major highways in the state.
