Three persons were on Sunday reportedly dead in a road crash after Fidiwo bridge, Ogun State axis of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The accident according to the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, involved a total of 14 persons – nine male adults, four female adults and one male child, amongst whom six male adults and three female adults sustained injuries.

“A total of three persons were recorded dead, one male adult, one female adult and one male child,” Florence Okpe, the FRSC spokesperson in Ogun confirmed.

Okpe informed that two vehicles were involved in the crash; a Nissan car with registration number, LSR377BL, and a Toyota Sienna bus marked, ABJ24XV.

According to her statement, the suspected causes of the crash were speeding, tyre burst and loss of control.

She said 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 “vehicle parade”, by checking the vehicle tyres, engines light and others before embarking on any trip.

He kicked against speed violation among motorists, urging them to obey traffic regulations at all times.
