Two killed in Ogun road crashes


Two persons died in the early hours of Tuesday in two crashes along the Lagos-Ibadan highway.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said one of the crashes occurred at 12 midnight, around Heyden Petrol Station, involving two male adults.

“Unfortunately, one person was recorded dead from the crash and the second person unhurt,” the FRSC spokesperson in Ogun, Florence Okpe, told DAILY POST.

Okpe said the vehicle involved was unidentified, stating that “it was a case of hit-and-run. The corpse was deposited at Idera morgue Sagamu.”

The second road crash, Okpe, said, occurred at about 04:25 am, around Tollgate on the Sagamu-Abeokuta route.

Okpe disclosed that the Mack tipper truck (JBD483ZY) involved was speeding, which led to a loss of control.

“The suspected cause of the lone crash was speed, which led to a loss of control, and the vehicle crashed.

“Two male adults were involved. One was killed and the other unhurt. The corpse was deposited at Idera morgue, Sagamu,” Okpe explained.

Meanwhile, the Ogun FRSC Sector Commander, Anthony Uga, described the crashes as avoidable if caution was considered and simple traffic rules were put in place.

Uga sympathised with the victims’ families and advised the motoring public to put safety first when using the road.
