An accident occured at 10:03 pm , Monday involving a commercial bus ,truck and motorcycle collision around Conoil Bus-Stop on the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway.Two persons were reported dead while four others sustained injuries as Mrs Temitope Oseni, the Owode-Ijako Unit Commander of the Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed the incident on Tuesday.

Oseni explained that a Daf blue truck with registration number, AAA 094 XT, was heading to Abeokuta from Sango-Ota on top speed and developed brake failure, and rammed into a commercial Mazda bus marked FKJ 509 XX and a Bajaj motorcycle marked FFF 416 XY.

However the deceased were transported to the state hospital, while the injured were receiving treatment as she stated “The corpses of the victims had been taken to State Hospital, Ota, while the survivors are receiving treatment at the same hospital.”

Oseni therefore gave advise to motorists against speeding and dangerous driving, to avoid loss of lives and property and to always ensure that their vehicles were in good condition before putting them on the roads to prevent mishaps.
