Eight persons died while 12 others were injured in an accident involving seven vehicles late night on Wednesday around Danco and Berger axis of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Traffic Agency, Tunde Akinbiyi, who confirmed the crash, said it involved three trucks and four cars. He said the tragedy happened due to speeding.

He said the container of the hook of the truck fell on two buses, while other vehicles rammed into one another.

“From investigations, it was learnt that the unfortunate fatal crash was caused by the overspeeding, reckless driving and loss of control on the part of one of vehicles involved which led to a container falling off from its hook on two buses and other vehicles ramming into each other in the process, in an attempt to escape from the scene,” he said.

He gave details of the vehicles as include: LSR 560 XJ, Toyota bus white; XD 792 EZA Masda bus; ABC 512 ZV, Ash, Toyota Sienna; APP 196 RQ gold, Toyota Camry; DED 776 XA red, Iveco Tipper; APP 248 XT white, Daf Tipper and LND 04 XX.

Mr Akinbiyi also said the corpses and five of the injured victims were taken to Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH) while seven injured victims taken to FAMOBIS Hospital Lotto.

“The crash scene has been cordoned off, on the inbound lane of the expressway. The motoring public are advised to drive cautiously along the diversion route created by Julius Berger and avoid speeding beyond 50kmph on the stretch,” he said.

Don't think there are no beasts just because the forest is silent. Because evil doesn't encounter in your premises doesnt mean others are not experiencing evil. Give thanks for life always. May their soul rest in perfect peace

shocked

Why it's so hard to get things right in the country has left me totally confused. What rocket science is required to put forth a blueprint of infrastructure development and enforcement of its details. Why in a modern time will containers be transported often through roads.

Some useful idiots below will yet another day defend this madness. Sad!

Container falling off of trailer and onto passenger vehicle.

Hard to see in other worlds.
Only in Nigeria.
A country whose leaders can't look upon how other countries do their things, and put their own country in order.

Where are the vios? Who licensed the driver?

Rip; unfortunate to be Nigerian.

That is the price of our corruption, VIO and respective agencies are looking for who to extort without doing their work.
Yet our pastors are openly preaching in it favour, we don't even want to do without it and we are all beneficiaries of corruption and a victim as well.
May God help us.

True talk, everyday, every hour, every minutes and every seconds, good things and bad things are happening to people. Only the affected knows, if u are affected by good things of life, don't think u are better, time and chance happeneth to you, just give thanks, don't look down on others and pray time and chance of evil did not catch up with you.

Is it not a shame that in Nigeria horrible and embarrassing avoidable accident lime this still happened

What can we get right in this country as a nation The damn road safety officials who primarily their is to ensure safety driving has dugressed to bribe taken, focus now on irrelevant traffic stuffs to the point of seeking to carrying guns.

The police are useless. VIO are idiots. All roads death trap. Govt fill with fake projects. Pls is this country cursed??.
