Sept 28, 2013 – Cement Truck Accident Killed College Student At Eleyele In Ibadan

A cement truck driver lost control of his lorry on Friday afternoon at Eleyele area of Ibadan, Oyo State, killing a student on the spot.

The lorry, which was loaded with cement, also collided with a commercial bus, injuring four others. The deceased student, who was identified as Rashidat Akinola, attended the Federal Cooperative College, Ibadan.

Eyewitnesses said the lorry, with number plate XA178BDG, was coming from the Dugbe end of the road and going towards Ologuneru area when it crushed the young woman. The other four victims that sustained various degrees of injuries were occupants of an 18-seater bus, which was also involved in the accident.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Olabisi Ilobanafor, told our correspondent that the driver was Lateef Okunola from Ipokia area of Ogun State.

She said, “He lost control of the vehicle at Eleyele roundabout and killed Rashidat Akinola on the spot.”

The injured persons were taken to the hospital by the Oyo State Mobile Ambulance Service.

A resident in the area told our correspondent that the driver and his assistant attempted to flee the scene of the accident but were prevented by eyewitnesses.

“After killing the woman, the driver and his friend tried to run away but they were apprehended by the people around. The driver looked to be about 20 years of age. He appeared to be too young to drive such a big vehicle,” she said.
