|3 Die, 11 Injured In Lagos/ibadan Expressway Bus Somersault by Magichand: 2:52pm On Jan 12|
Three persons lost their lives while eleven others sustained various degrees of injury in a road accident when a Mazda bus somersaulted, near Makun city on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway on Friday.
Mr Clement Oladele, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun, who confirmed the incident, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta on Saturday that the somersault was preceded by excessive speed, tyre burst, and the driver’s subsequent loss of control.
Oladele further explained that the bus, with registration number FST 578 XM, somersaulted many times, leading to the death of three persons, while 11 others sustained various degrees of injury.
“Three male adults, eight female adults were injured, while one male adult and two female adults were killed in the accident,” he said.
The FRSC official said that the injured victims had been taken to Idera Hospital in Sagamu, while the bodies of the three people who lost their lives had been deposited at the morgue in Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu.
Oladele urged motorists to drive with standard tyres.
He also advised them to use their day time running lights, due to poor visibility, common in the early morning and late evening hours.

Hmmm....burst tyre.... the cause of soooo many serious injuries , people being handicapped and deaths. Drivers.... abeg.... if you don't know...Google your vehicle make, year and model and find out the tyre pressure (psi). Invest in a tyre pressure gauge...check the pressure yourself...cars usually 32 psi... never 50 as the ignorant tyre guys strongly believe.At 50psi... you wouldn't have a flat...when the tyre will slowly go flat if punctured.....giving you time and control to bring the vehicle safely to a stop... 50 will result in instant blow out and loss of control ..as happens sooo often. Avoidable loss of limbs and lives.
Those who have ears.......
