Two persons die on Lagos-Ibadan road accident
Two persons have died in a fatal accident along the popular Lagos-Ibadan highway on Friday.
The crash reportedly occurred at 7:02am around the interchange in Ogun State.
“A total of four persons were involved, all male adults. Two persons were injured and two deaths were recorded from the crash,” the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun Sector Command told DAILY POST.
The spokesperson of the FRSC in Ogun, Florence Okpe, informed that two vehicles were involved – a Toyota Tundra pickup with registration number AGL254HB, and an imported fairly-used Lexus car.
“The suspected causes of the crash were excessive speed and dangerous driving on the part of the Lexus car driver, who, while coming from Lagos, made a dangerous U-turn without observing traffic signs and at that process, the Tundra pickup coming from Ibadan rammed into the car and a lady by the roadside waiting for a vehicle. Unfortunately, the lady died, Okpe explained.
She added that those who sustained injuries in the accident were taken to Idera Hospital in Sagamu for medical attention, saying the dead victims were deposited at the same hospital’s mortuary.
