Five injured, three cars damaged in Ogbomoso auto crash [PHOTOS]


About five people have been injured as a result of a road accident that occurred in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

Three cars were also damaged as a result of the accident.

The accident occurred at Takie area in Ogbomoso on Wednesday.

Saga Gist gathered that the bus with registration number Osun RLG 97 ZY, laden with jerry cans of palm oil, kolanut, and passengers, from Ifon in Osun State, lost control at Takie area.

About five people were injured as a result of the accident.

Three cars were also damaged.

A source from the town revealed that, “As it approached Takie from Okelerin direction, I think its brake failed, forcing the driver to ram into a parked car (Mitsubishi-Ijaya), which went on to hit other two vehicles in front of the filling station.

“The ijaya got damaged beyond repair as the bus dragged it as it struggled to stop. It has, however, been towed away.

“The passenger sitting in the front sustained a deep cut in the head, while some women behind had broken legs. But thank God, nobody died.”

The people who were injured had been taken to the hospital.
