The eyewitness suggested that heavy rainfall and poor visibility might have contributed to the accident, which happened on a bend notorious for previous crashes. It took some time for residents to respond to the emergency due to the rain and encroaching darkness.

Although there is a ban on tricycle operations in Bayelsa State beyond 7:00 pm, it is common for some drivers to continue operating outside the state capital, Yenagoa.
