#1 Fatality and 3 Injured in Tragic Accident as Truck Collides with Waiting Passengers on Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway

At least one person has lost their life, and three others sustained injuries in a tragic incident on the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, where a truck collided with waiting passengers.


The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACEC) confirmed the occurrence, stating that it took place at Toll-Gate around 5:06 a.m. on Saturday.


According to Mr. Adekunle Ajibade, the South-West Area Commander of TRACE, the vehicle, with registration number XA356 ALD, was en route from Sango-Ota to Lagos when it lost control due to excessive speed. The truck then collided with four individuals waiting to board a bus at Toll Gate.


Regrettably, one person lost their life in the accident, while three others sustained varying degrees of injuries. The deceased’s body has been conveyed to the morgue at Ifo General Hospital, Ogun, and the survivors are currently receiving treatment at Ota General Hospital.


Ajibade emphasized the importance of caution for motorists, particularly truck drivers, urging them to avoid speeding to prevent such avoidable crashes. He reassured the public of TRACE’s commitment to increasing patrols to address driver misconduct and reduce accidents throughout 2024.
