The vehicles included a 18-seater passenger bus, a red car, an ash car and a truck fully loaded with 7up soda drink.
Recall that on April 19, Governor Godwin Obaseki imposed a 10-day dusk-to-dawn curfew on Edo, with effect from April 20.
This was in a bid to curtail the spread of the deadly coronavirus as he planned to increase screening and testing of citizens for the COVID-19 pandemic.
The curfew is expected to be reviewed tomorrow as the initial 10-day lapses.
As at time of this report, no death was recorded at the scene of the incident as individuals involved were rushed to a nearby hospital.
