10 dies, seven injured in Lagos-Ibadan auto-crash

No fewer than 10 men were said to have lost their lives in an early morning fatal crash around Kara, on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, on Tuesday, while seven others were injured.

The crash occurred around 5 am, involving an ash-coloured Toyota Hiace bus with registration number FKY898YF and an orange Tipper truck.

According to a statement from the Spokesperson of the Ogun State Sector Command of Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC) Florence Okpe, the suspected cause of the crash was overspeeding, which made the bus lose control and rammed into the tipper negotiating turning.

The statement partly reads,
“A total of 18 Male adults were involved.
Seven (7) male adults were injured while ten (10) Male adults were recorded dead from the crash.

“The injured victims were taken to Famobis Hospital for medical attention, while the dead were deposited at Idera Morgue, Sagamu.

“The Sector Commander, CC Anthony Uga was pained over the fatal crash that could have been avoided if necessary caution was put in place.

“He also emphasized that drivers should endeavour to take a 15-minute rest for every four (4) hours drive because fatigue has been a major cause of road traffic crashes.”
