Three people have been confirmed dead following an accident that occurred at the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Saturday.
The accident involved a DAF truck, a Toyota Sienna and a Toyota Camry at Olowotedo axis outbound Lagos.
The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.
Akinbiyi said the accident, which occurred at 4:07 pm, was caused by the Toyota Camry car with no registration number.
He said the car wrongfully overtook the truck, loaded with empty crates, and this caused the truck driver to lose control and ram into the Toyota Sienna.
Akinbiyi noted that nine people were involved in the accident, with three people dying at the location of the accident while two others sustained injuries.
“The Toyota Camry car which caused the accident escaped,” he said.
He added that both the Sienna marked SHS 31 XH and the truck with Registration Number AKD 361 XY had been taken to Redeemed Police Station for further investigation.
He stated that the deceased were deposited at a private morgue in Sagamu, while the injured were taken to Famobis hospital in Lotto, Mowe.
