The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) has said three persons died and another sustained injuries in an accident involving two vehicles at Lotto, opposite NNPC Filing Station on Lagos-Ibadan expressway, on Friday.
Mr Olusola Ojuoro, the Mowe/Ibafo Area Commander of TRACE, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ota, Ogun, that the accident happened at 8.45 a.m.
Ojuoro said that an Iveco truck with registration number AAB 458 ZY was inbound Lagos when it lost control due to brake failure and crushed a Mazda bus marked XY 660 EKY.
“The corpses of the victims have been deposited at Idera Hospital Morgue, Ogun, while the survivor was taken to an undisclosed hospital by his relative,” he said. The TRACE official cautioned motorists and truck drivers against exceeding speed limits.
