4 die, 12 injured in fresh Lagos-Ibadan Expressway crash

At least four persons were killed while 12 others sustained injuries in an accident along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Our correspondent gathered that the crash occurred at about 10:555am around Oniworo turning in Fidiwo, along the highway.

The incident involved a Mazda bus marked APP111XM and a Tanker with no registration number.

The fully loaded commercial bus heading to Lagos, reportedly rammed into the diesel tanker.

The Spokesperson of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Ogun State Command, Florence Okpe, confirmed the incident to Daily Trust in Abeokuta.

According to her, 16 persons were involved in the accident and four died while 12 others sustained injuries.

Okpe identified speeding and loss of control as the suspected causes of the crash.

She said the injured victims were taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere, and IDERA Hospital, Sagamu, while the bodies of the killed were deposited at FOS Ipara.

The FRSC Publicist quoted the Sector Commander FRSC, Ahmed Umar, to have cautioned motorists on speed violations.

While commiserating with the family of the crash victims, the command enjoined them to contact FRSC Ogunmakin for more information about the crash.
