At least two passengers sustained injuries in multiple crashes along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, Daily Trust reports.

The incident involved two vehicles and a fuel tanker which went up in flames around the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry (MFM) Prayer City.

Lagos-Ibadan expressway is notorious for road crashes as it had claimed not less than 30 lives this year.

The Spokesperson of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC), Ogun Command, Florence Okpe, who confirmed the crash in a terse statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, said no death was recorded.

She said five persons were involved and all male adults, out of which two persons sustained injuries.

According to her, the vehicles involved in the multiple crashes were a ash -coloured Camry marked AAA251HE, a Toyoya Corolla with registration number LSD828GS  and an unmarked mack truck.

Okpe blamed that accident on speeding, brake failure and loss of control on the part of the Tanker

“The rescue operation is still on to put the fire under control by Personnel of Ogun state Fire service.  FRSC men are managing the traffic situation   assisted by other agencies,” she said.
