Tragedy as car crushes groom’s father in front of registry

The ancient city of Benin, the Edo state capital was on Saturday thrown into confusion during a wedding ceremony, as a car crushed the groom’s father identified as Mr. Edward Airhiavbere. The man died instantly.
Kblog gathered that the wedding which had captain of industries and bigwigs of the society in attendance was ended abruptly before the couple could say, “Yes, I do.”
The accident occurred as a young driver, attempting to re-park his car near the venue of the event lost control and crashed into a safely seated man against the back of a a stationed Toyota Camry, abruptly ending a wedding that had attracted some of the who-is-who of the capital city’s social circles.

The victim, Edward Airhiavbere, a Septuagenarian, immediately gave up the ghost despite spirited attempt to rush him to the hospital.
The unidentified young man who drove the blue-coloured, old modelled, Isuzu V8 sports utility car with registration number, Lagos, SR 21 KJA, exploited the confusion that enveloped the registry, and escaped mob action.
The accident occurred at about 9.30am on Saturday in front of the Registry of the Oredo Local Government Area in Edo State, located just about 100 metres from the sprawling palace of the Benin Monarch.
It left the groom, bride and others in the bridal train weeping profusely and uncontrollably as the victim, Edward Airhiavbere, apparently died on the spot before he could be rushed to the nearby Central Hospital’s emergency ward for treatment.
