Road accident in Ogun state claims life of three and injures three
On Monday morning, November 7, an accident along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway claimed the lives of three people and injured three more.
The accident, which involved four males and two females, happened around 5:45 a.m.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) confirmed the incident, saying two men and one woman died and the remaining passengers were injured.
Florence Okpe, an FRSC spokesperson in Ogun, said the accident involved a Toyota Sienna bus with the registration number DKP60LG.
The Sienna bus was said to have engaged in speeding and this led to loss of control. It was eventually “brushed” by a tanker, Okpe said.
The FRSC said the injured victims have been taken to Idera Hospital, Sagamu, while the deceased were deposited at the hospital’s morgue.
Meanwhile, the Sector Commander of the FRSC in Ogun, Ahmed Umar, has commiserated with the crash victims.
