Truck crushes three tricycle passengers in Ogun


An unregistered vehicle on Tuesday crushed three persons to death along the Ogijo-Mosimi road in Ogun State.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said the truck hit the tricycle, but refused to stop.

FRSC spokesperson in Ogun, Florence Okpe, told DAILY POST that the crash occurred at about 10:25 pm, involving six persons.

“A total of 06 persons were involved which comprised four male adults, one female adult and one female child.

“Three persons were injured (two male adults and one female adult). A total of three persons were recorded dead from the crash (two male adults and one female child),” Okpe explained.

She stated that the truck with no registration number rammed into a tricycle marked LSD175QM, saying it was a case of hit and run, as confirmed by one of the victims.

The injured victims, he said, were taken to Dasochris Hospital, Gbaga, for medical attention while the families of the deceased took the dead bodies.

“The Sector Commander FRSC Ogun Sector Command, CC Anthony Uga is pained over the recklessness of some motorists not considering other road users and he emphasised on the need to use common sense speed limit to avoid RTC,” she said.
