Three persons Sunday died while 10 others sustained varying degrees of injuries in a lone crash on Abeokuta-Sagamu Expressway in Ogun State. 

Our correspondent gathered that the accident occurred at about 5:26pm on Sunday at the notorious Onipepeye axis of the highway. 

The spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC), Florence Okpe, confirmed the incident on Sunday night. 

Okpe said 15 passengers were involved in the crash with the Mazda bus marked APP297XA.

“The suspected cause of the lone crash was excessive speed when approaching a dangerous bend which led to the loss of control,” Okpe said. 

She disclosed that the injured victims were taken to State Hospital, Ijaye, Abeokuta, for medical attention and the corpses were deposited at the mortuary.
