A speeding bus driver heading to Ibadan from Ore in Ondo state today caused the untimely deaths of about 16 people.

The driver of a Toyota Hiase bus reportedly lost control of the vehicle after it collided with a fuel tanker while trying to make a dangerous U-tern along Ife Ibadan road.

The bus with plate # MUS 702 XH reportedly caught fire, trapping all occupants.

The survivors were immediately rushed to the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital for treatment.

Eyewitnesses blamed the bus driver (now deceased) for the fatal crash.

  1. Until people learn to value their own lives, as human beings, these sad incidents will continue to occur in Nigeria. How can people just sit and watch the driver speeding recklessly and drive them to their graves? Even animal lives have value in civilized countries, you don’t see the dead carcass of animals on streets, how much more human beings. If I am not happy with the way a driver is driving me, I will protest until he slows down, or get off at a safe spot and find another means of getting to my destination. God console families of the dead.
