Two persons have died after the driver of a bus reportedly dozed off and rammed into a parked truck along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

It was gathered that the incident happened around Saapade, inbound Lagos, at about 6:30a.m. on Tuesday.

The spokesman of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the incident in a terse statement.

He said a truck marked EKY 65 XF and a J5 bus with no registration number were involved in the crash.

Akinbiyi blamed the crash on speeding and wrongful overtaking on the path of the J5 bus.

Out of the four persons involved in the crash, Akinbiyi said two died while others were rescued unhurt.

“The presumed dead were taken to FOS morgue, Ipara by the owner of the morgue with his ambulance,” Akinbiyi explained.

Akinbiyi explained that the truck loaded with foodstuffs developed a mechanical problem while on transit and had to be parked off the road to be attended to.

“However, in the course of attending to the vehicle, the J5 bus which was loaded with tomatoes, pepper and the likes, rammed into the truck from behind, due to excessive speed and dozing (by the driver) while on wheels, killing the driver and the motor boy instantly due to the impact of the collision,” he said.

While commiserating with the families of the deceased, TRACE advised drivers to avoid speeding, take adequate rest before embarking on a journey and avoid driving when visibility is poor.
