The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACEC) has said no fewer than three people have been left injured in an accident on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway that claimed one life.
The accident, involving an articulated truck, occurred at Toll-Gate around 5:06 a.m. on Saturday.
According to Mr Adekunle Ajibade, the South-West Area Commander of TRACE, the vehicle, bearing registration number XA356 ALD, was travelling from Sango-Ota to Lagos when it lost control due to excessive speed.
The truck subsequently collided with four individuals waiting to board a bus at Toll Gate.
Tragically, one man lost his life in the accident, while three others sustained various degrees of injuries.
The deceased’s body has been transferred to the morgue at Ifo General Hospital, Ogun, while the survivors are undergoing treatment at Ota General Hospital.
Ajibade issued a caution to motorists, especially truck drivers, urging them to avoid speeding to prevent such avoidable crashes.
He reiterated TRACE’s commitment to increasing patrols to address driver misconduct and reduce accidents throughout 2024.
