Five people on Thursday died in a road accident along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Four others sustained injuries in the accident which occurred around Fidiwo bridge along the highway.

It was gathered that the accident, which occurred at about 2.48pm around Fidiwo Bridge, involved a Prime bus with registration number MUS 191 HA and a Toyota Camry car marked AKD 754 BG.

The spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun Sector Command, Florence Okpe, confirmed the accident to journalists in Abeokuta.

Okpe explained that the accident involved nine persons, comprising six female and three male adults.

“Five persons lost their lives from the crash – three female and two male adults.

“Probable causes of the crash were wrongful overtaking, speed, and tyre burst which led to a loss of control and veering off the road,” Okpe said.

She added that the injured victims were taken to Victory Hospital in Ogere, while the corpses of the dead were deposited at the FOS morgue, Ipara.
