ABEOKUTA—Three persons have reportedly lost their lives in an accident involving a Honda Civic car and a white Nissan cabstar at Olorunsogo village along Abeokuta-Sagamu Expressway.
The Public Relations Officer, Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, TRACE, Babatunde Akinbiyi, who confirmed the incident yesterday, said the accident occurred Saturday night.
Akinbiyi said the Nissan cabstar with number plates KSF 906 XR was speeding and in the process lost control.
He said the cabstar left its lane for the other lane, which led to a head-on collision with the Honda car with number plates GBE 495 AA.
His words: “The cabstar was on top speed, lost control and crossed to the opposite lane and hit the oncoming vehicle.
“The accident involved eight people: six males, two females. Three males died in the accident while two people sustained various degrees of injuries.”
The TRACE spokesman said the corpses were taken to the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, mortuary in Abeokuta, and the injured ones were admitted to the same hospital.
Mr. Clement Oladele, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, in Ogun State, also confirmed the incident.
