Two persons died while six people sustained varying degrees of injury in a lone crash that occurred around Car Park C Turning of the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The crash which occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, 26 December 2023 involved a Toyota Hiace Bus with registration number ACA607XT.
In a statement, the Sector Commander, Ogun State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Mr Anthony Uga said a total of 8 persons were involved (all adult male), out of which six sustained injuries while two deaths were recorded.
He blamed the lone crash on excessive speeding which led to the loss of control and made the vehicle crash into the road barrier.
Mr Uga said the injured victims were taken to a private hospital in Mowe and the corpses were deposited at the same hospital’s morgue.
The Sector Commander expressed displeasure over the attitude of drivers of not obeying basic traffic rules especially that of speed, which he noted has been the cause of most fatal crashes along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
