Four dead in auto crash on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway


Four persons died in a fatal crash on Monday morning along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State.

According to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in a statement, the auto crash occurred at about 12:45 a.m.

The FRSC spokesperson in Ogun, Florence Okpe said a total of 21 persons were involved in the crash, comprising 13 male adults and eight female adults.

Of the 21 persons, one male and two females sustained injuries in the road crash, while the four deceased victims were all male adults.

A crash involved a luxury bus with registration number, ACA533ZP that hit another vehicle that had no registration number on it.

“The suspected cause of the crash was excessive speed which led to loss of control,” Okpe added.

She disclosed that the injured victims were taken to Famobis Hospital for medical attention, while the corpses were deposited at Idera morgue.

The FRSC Sector Commander in Ogun, Anthony Uga, had described the incident as avoidable if necessary caution had been put in place and simple rules obeyed.

Uga advised motorists to apply a common sense speed limit, especially when visibility is poor at night.

He sympathised with the victims’ families for the loss, enjoining them to contact FRSC, Mowe unit Command, for more information about the crash.
