Truck crushes 2 at Idiroko

Scene of an accident

The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) on Tuesday said that two persons lost their lives in an accident that happened along Atan-Idiroko road.

Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of TRACE,  disclosed that the accident happened around 9.30 a.m.

Akinbiyi said that the truck with an unknown registration number  coming from Oke-Odan, Idiroko, lost control due to  speeding and rammed into a vulcaniser and his friend working by the road side.

“The corpses of the victims had been deposited at the morgue at  Kayode Hospital at Atan, Ogun, while the truck driver is in the custody of the police at area,’’ he said.

Akinbiyi, however, advised motorists and road users to exercise caution on the highways as the end of the year approaches.
