Pregnant Woman, Two Others Die In Lagos-Ibadan Road Multiple Car Crash
The fatal crash occurred around 5am on Thursday at Danco axis of the highway, inbound Lagos, barely two days after an explosion killed two persons along Ogere stretch of the road.
It was gathered that a DAF truck (flat body) with registration number, XY 895 GGE and a granite-laden Iveco truck marked, JBD 16 XY were involved in the accident, DailyPost reports.
The accident also involved a Mazda bus (LND 676 XX) loaded with tomatoes where the pregnant was riding in and another Mazda bus (BDG 755 YA) loaded with garri.
Confirming the incident, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) Corps spokesman, Babatunde Akinbiyi said;
The driver of the Mazda bus loaded with garri lost control as a result of speeding and rammed into a run away truck from the rear, leading to multiple hits by other vehicles.
Among the three casualties who died in the unfortunate crash, two males were occupants of the Mazda bus loaded with garri, while a pregnant woman was in the Mazda bus loaded with tomatoes.
The dead victims, Akinbiyi said, were evacuated by FRSC officials to Idera Private Morgue, Sagamu, while TRACE officials cleared the road to regulate and normalize traffic.
He added that all the vehicles involved have been towed to Sagamu police divisional headquarters.
TRACE Corps commiserated with the families of the dead, warning motorists to desist from excessive speeding.
