Road Accident: Three Lives Lost, Nine Persons Injured in Ogun

A road accident near the Fidiwo Bridge along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway recorded three fatalities, with nine persons on the injury list.

The unfortunate incident was recorded on Sunday, according to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

Spokesperson, Federal Road Safety Corps, Ogun State, Florence Okpe, confirmed that 14 persons were involved in the accident.

Feelers from the FRSC indicate that the accident might be traceable to speeding, tyre burst and loss of control.

Okpe said “a total of three persons were recorded dead, one male adult, one female adult and one male child.

“The Nissan car driver, while speeding, had a tyre bust. It lost control and rammed into the sienna vehicle.”

Okpe added that the injured victims were taken to Victory Hospital in Ogere, while the bodies of the deceased were deposited at the State Hospital, Isara.

The Ogun FRSC Sector Commander, Ahmed Umar, while commiserating with the family of the victims, advised motorists to always do what he called a “vehicle parade”, by checking the vehicle tyres, engines light and others before embarking on any trip.

He kicked against speed violations among motorists, urging them to obey traffic regulations.
