Three people were confirmed dead in an accident involving two vehicles at Kara bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Sunday.

Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, the spokesperson, Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abeokuta.

Akinbiyi explained that the incident occurred at 1:20am, adding that it involved a blue Iveco truck marked AAB 414 ZY and a white Toyota Cabster with registration number XUR 601 XY.

He quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the accident was caused by excessive speed and brake failure on the part of the Toyota Cabster which rammed into the broken-down truck.

Akinbiyi stated that the truck was set ablaze by hoodlums who believed the accident was caused by the truck driver.

“It took the intervention of TRACE, police and the Ogun State Fire Service before normalcy could be restored on the Kara bridge for incoming vehicles inbound Lagos at that hour,” he said.

He said that five people were involved in the accident, saying three people died while two others were unhurt.

“Police and Ogun State Fire Service were contacted and the deceased were taken away by their families,” he said.
