Truck driver dies in Ogun road crash


A truck driver has died in a road accident along the Sagamu-Benin highway in Ogun State.

It was learnt that the crash, which occurred on Saturday around the Adelex axis in Ikenne Local Government Area, injured two women.

Confirming the incident, the spokesman of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said a white Man Diesel truck marked AGL 830 XN and an unregistered red Mack truck were involved in the crash.

Akinbiyi explained that the crash, according to eyewitnesses, was caused by the driver of the Man diesel truck, who lost control due to overspeeding and rammed into the back of the Mack truck.

“The driver of the Man diesel truck lost his life in the process due to the impact of the collision,” he stated, adding that the two female passengers who sustained injuries were seated beside the driver.

The victims, he disclosed, were taken to Idera Hospital, Sagamu, where the corpse of the deceased was deposited in the morgue by men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
