Four persons reportedly died in a lone accident involving a DAF truck which occurred on Friday opposite Romania Trailer Park along the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway.
This sad incident came less than 72 hours after no fewer than nine persons lost their lives at the Asese end of the road when a luxury bus rammed into a stationary truck.
In the latest accident, our correspondent gathered that the truck with the registration number DAL 599 XY was loaded with bags of beans and onions.
It was on its way to Lagos from the northern part of the country when the accident occurred around 6.15am.
The Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said the accident was caused by speeding, which made the driver lose the control of the vehicle and it tumbled.
He said about 10 people were involved in the accident which left four dead and three injured.
Akinbiyi said the Hausa community at the scene of the accident, had evacuated the corpses of the four victims.
He reported that the three injured victims had been taken to Ogere Trailer Park hospital for treatment.
He said, “The accident happened opposite Romania Trailer park mostly occupied by Hausas and they were the first respondents. They have evacuated the presumed dead and the injured victims had been taken to the hospital before our arrival.
“They insisted they would take the presumed dead away and prevented our personnel from taking pictures.”
