Three travelers have died in an early Wednesday multiple accidents in Lagos.
The victims lost their lives in the crashes that happened around 3.00am at Mile 12 Ogere on Lagos-Ibadan expressway, according to the Ogun State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Ahmed Umar.
Umar, who spoke with journalists in Abeokuta, Ogun State capitol, disclosed that the accident involved an unregistered truck, another marked T 4916 LA, and a Nissan Micra car with registration number BDJ 257 XF.
He said: “Over speeding and dangerous driving by one of the truck drivers might have caused the accident. One of the truck drivers was said to be trying to navigate a bend when the other truck which was coming from Ibadan, rammed into it.
“Since the crash obstructed the road, the driver of the Micra car ran into it but was able to control his vehicle with little damage on the car. Seven people were involved in the accident, including one woman and six men.
“Meanwhile, the remains of the deceased have been deposited at the FOS Morgue, Ipara. Traffic has been diverted and the FRSC personnel are still on the ground trying to manage the situation and ensure that the obstruction is moved from the road.”
