The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps said an articulated vehicle crushed a man to death while three others were injured in an accident at Toll-Gate on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, on Saturday.
The South-West Area Commander of TRACEC, Mr Adekunle Ajibade, told NAN in Ota, Ogun, on Saturday that the incident occurred at about 5:06am.
Ajibade explained that the vehicle with number plate, XA356 ALD, coming from Sango-Ota to Lagos lost control due to speeding and rammed into four persons waiting to board a bus at Toll-Gate.
He added that the accident resulted in the death of a man, while three others sustained varying degrees of injuries in the fatal truck accident.
“The corpse of the victim has been deposited at the morgue in Ifo General Hospital, Ogun, while the survivors are receiving treatment at Ota General Hospital,” he said.
Ajibade cautioned motorists, especially truck drivers, against speeding to prevent avoidable crashes.
He also reiterated the commitment of the agency to embark on more patrols to check the excesses of drivers and reduce crashes in 2024.
