A pregnant woman and a minor yesterday died as a truck crashed into a building along Abeokuta – Ibadan expressway in Ogun State.

It was gathered that the truck, laden with cement, lost control and rammed into a building, killing two and injuring four other occupants of the building.

The accident involved a DAF Truck marked BDJ 112 XF. 

The spokesman of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the accident to journalists in Abeokuta.

Akinbiyi disclosed that the truck was traveling to Ibadan from Ewekoro when the driver lost control and rammed into the building.

He attributed the cause of the accident to excessive speeding leading to loss of control which made the truck driver ram into the building.

The TRACE Spokesman said a team of police officers was deployed to the scene of the incident to prevent youths who were angered by the accident from causing chaos.

Akinbiyi disclosed that the corpses of the deceased have been deposited at the morgue of the Odeda General Hospital.
