Three people have reportedly died with one person injured in an auto crash involving a truck and a passenger bus on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday.
It was learnt that the truck with registration number AAB 458 ZY suddenly had a failed brake and rammed into a Mazda bus marked XY 660 EKY at Lotto bus-stop, opposite NNPC Filling Station, thereby, crushing it.
The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps hinted that the truck driver lost control of the vehicle due to brake failure.
The Mowe/Ibafo Area Commander of TRACE, Mr. Olusola Ojuoro, confirmed that three lives were lost in the accident while one person sustained injury.
Ojuoro added, “The corpses of the victims have been deposited at Idera Hospital Morgue Ogun. The injured person was taken to an undisclosed hospital by his relative.”
Ojuoro enjoined motorists and truck drivers not to exceed speed limits, stressing that they should ensure their vehicles are in good condition before plying the roads to avoid unnecessary loss of lives.Follow us on social media
