A horrific road accident at J4 along the Sagamu/Ijebu-Ode/Ore Expressway has resulted in the loss of two lives and injuries to seven others just before Christmas.
The crash occurred on Saturday at 3:35 pm, involving a Chevrolet SUV marked WWW75MW, and a truck marked, SRA584XB.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Spokesman, Florence Okpe, confirmed the accident to newsmen on Saturday. Okpe said six men and one woman were injured, while one man and one woman died in the crash.
“The suspected causes of the crash were excessive speed and road obstruction. The jeep driver rammed into the station truck due to speeding.
“The injured victims were rescued by a good Samaritan driver that was driving behind them and took them to hospital for medical attention, while the corpses were deposited at the state General Hospital morgue, Ijebu-Ode by FRSC operatives,” Okpe said.
She quoted the Sector Commander of the FRSC in Ogun, Anthony Uga, to have advised motorists to always apply caution while driving, urging them to maintain the stipulated speed limit, especially during this period of high vehicular movement.
