Residents of Celica area in Egbeda Local Government Area of Oyo State were thrown into confusion on Monday morning, as an accident caused by a loaded truck killed four persons along the New Ife Road.

Vanguard gathered that the struck driver lost control of his vehicle and rammed into a commercial taxi.

An eyewitness, identified as Sunday, told Vanguard that the fully-loaded truck skidded off the road and into the taxi, before plunging into a nearby ditch.

He revealed that the taxi was about to join the main road when the truck crashed into it.
