Truck crushes two to death along Lagos-Ibadan expressway

Two women were, on Saturday, crushed to death in an accident involving a Mack truck and a motorcycle around Lotto, beside NNPC filling station, on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Spokesperson of Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abeokuta, NAN reports.

Akinbiyi, who said that the accident occurred around 8:02 am., added that the truck, marked FST 984 XX, had brake failure, lost control and hit the moving motorcycle, with no number plate, killing the women on the spot.

He said “The truck and the motorcycle were both on the outbound lane from Lagos when the crash happened due to brake failure by the truck, which caused the driver to lose control.

“The truck and the motorcycle, as well as the driver, are with the police at the Redeemed Police Station.

”The rider of the motorcycle disappeared after the accident and was nowhere to be found.”

”The bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the morgue of the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu,” he added.
