Breaking! 4 die, 8 injured in Lagos-Ibadan expressway accident

No fewer than four persons died while eight others were injured in an accident involving a Mazda bus and a truck at Lufwape on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Mr Ahmed Umar, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abeokuta on Sunday.

Umar noted that the incident occurred at 3:40 pm due to over speeding on the part of the truck driver.

“Out of the 20 accident victims, 2 female and 2 male passengers died while eight men and six women sustained injuries.

“The truck driver drove dangerously, forcing the Mazda bus driver to lose control and crashed on the highway. Unfortunately, the truck driver escaped,” he said.

He stated that the injured victims were taken to Idera hospital, Sagamu, for treatment while the deceased were deposited at the same hospital mortuary.

Umar cautioned motorists on dangerous driving, warning them to drive defensively, maintain a safe speed and obey traffic rules and regulations.

The sector commander commiserated with the family of the crash victims and enjoined them to contact the FRSC Mowe division for more information on the crash.
