Tragic Accident Claims Three Lives With Many Injured As Bus Somersault On Lagos-Ibadan Express Way

This is indeed no cheery news as an accident has been reported to have claimed lives on the Lagos-Ibadan Express way.

Three persons lost their lives while eleven others sustained various degrees of injury in a road accident when a Mazda bus somersaulted, near Makun city on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Friday.

Mr Clement Oladele, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Ogun State, who confirmed the incident, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Abeokuta on Saturday that the somersault was preceded by excessive speed, a tyre burst, and the driver’s subsequent loss of control.

Oladele further explained that the bus, with registration number FST 578 XM, somersaulted several times, leading to the death of three persons, while 11 others sustained various degrees of injury.

“Three male adults, eight female adults were injured, while one male adult and two female adults were killed in the accident,” he said.

The FRSC official said that the injured victims had been taken to Idera Hospital in  Sagamu, while the bodies of the three people who lost their lives had been deposited at the morgue in Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu.

Oladele urged motorists to drive with standard tyres.

He also advised them to use their day time running lights, due to poor visibility, common in the early morning and late evening hours.
