Three dead in two road accidents at same spot in Ogun

Three persons reportedly died in two road accidents that happened at the same spot near Ifo market, along the Abeokuta-Sango highway, Ogun State.

DAILY POST learnt that a tricycle and a pick-up van rammed into a stationary Mack truck from behind at different times.

The incident led to the immediate death of three victims, while three others sustained injuries.

The Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) corps told newsmen that the crashes occurred on Saturday night and in the early hours of Sunday.

According to TRACE spokesman, Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Mack truck travelling inward Abeokuta had its propeller pulled off while in motion, thereby rendering it immobile.
The truck, numbered T-7827LA, was then moved off the road with caution tape and cones used to separate it from the main road.

However, a speeding tricycle with registration number JGB724WB rammed into the truck on Saturday night.
“The rider died in the process and passengers suffered injuries,” the TRACE spokesman stated.

Akinbiyi added that a Nissan Pick-Up van, with registration number GEN256XA, also ran into the truck on Sunday morning, killing the driver and one of the passengers.

The bodies of the deceased, he informed, have been deposited at the General Hospital, Ifo, while the injured are receiving treatment in the same hospital.
