Truck crushes okada rider, passenger to death in Ogun

A commercial motorcyclist and his passenger were on Wednesday crushed to death by a truck in Ogun State.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun State said the accident occurred at about 9:10 am around Toll Gate, Bible College, Sango.

The crash involved a Daf truck with registration number, KTG941YG and a Bajaj motorcycle with no registration number.

The Ogun FRSC spokesperson, Florence Okpe, said four male adults were involved in the accident.

“Two persons were recorded dead and two others were unhurt,” Okpe said.

She blamed the crash on excessive speed and route violation on the part of the motorcycle rider.

“The DAF truck driver travelling along Abeokuta-Lagos towards Toll Gate, Ota collided with the motorcycle rider, who violated his route and both the rider and the [passenger] died on the spot,” she said.

Okpe added that the bodies of the victims have been deposited at the morgue in Ifo General Hospital.
