8  persons, five males and three females, have lost their lives in an accident on Tuesday morning when a Hummer bus conveying them rammed into a Mack truck.

The accident occurred around 8:40am before Sagamu by Wictech Roofing and Pipes.
It was gathered that an interstate commercial bus marked BEN313YX rammed into a truck with registration number MUS730XN killing seven people on the spot.

According to the Ogun State Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) four women sustained injuries in the crash and were rushed to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH).

The command’s Public Education Officer (PEO), Florence Okpe said the accident was caused as a result of over speeding by the Benin, Edo State bound commercial bus.

She said:

“The suspected cause of the crash was a speeding commercial bus travelling from Lagos going to Benin in Edo State, but rammed into the truck ahead of it.
“The total number of people involved were 14 comprising six male adults and eight female adults. The number of people injured were four females. The FRSC rescue team evacuated the injured victims to OOUTH Sagamu and the corpses deposited at the hospital mortuary.
“The FRSC Ogun State Commander, Corps Commander Clement Oladele has once again, reiterated the need for caution by drivers. Drivers are urged to always travel at recommended speed limit because life has no duplicate.
“Passengers should not abdicate their responsibility of cautioning their drivers whenever they engaged in reckless driving.”

      I am sorry for your lost man. It is high time Nigeria needs to penalize and revoke licenses of traffic violators.

      Lost my neighborhood friend in the same Lagos-Ibadan express due to a speeding commercial vehicle and terrible bad road in the year 2000.

      so sorry u lost yr mum to such rascals who drive recklesslessly just to make profit by going back and mouth.some drivers would proudly tell he likes leaving as early as possible from lagos to the east for him to return back to lagos that night.i cautioned him which he objected and attested than many drivers do it.They chew kolanuts and drink hot drinks to stay afloat during longtrips.FRSC should do more to hold these dangerous men accountable and stricter laws enacted to prosecute defaulters.imagine after a long rigourous trip from a foreign and falling in the cold hands of death in their native nation.may their souls Rip and strength to their families
