Dangote Truck Crushes 10 To Death On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
The journey of 10 passengers have ended in an accident involving a cement-laden Dangote truck and a bus at the Alapako/Ogunmakin end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The bus driver, who had 11 passengers, collided with a cement-laden Dangote truck around 9pm on Tuesday.
It was gathered that the two vehicles were heading in opposite directions.
A diversion was said to have been created at that end of the expressway due to an ongoing repair work by a construction company.
The diversion had forced all vehicles travelling to and from the expressway to one side of the road.
The driver was reported to have left his lane in a bid to overtake other vehicles, and rammed into the speeding truck.
11 vehicle passengers were said to have been trapped in the mangled bus, as officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps struggled to rescue them.
However, only one of the vehicle occupants survived with injuries and was rushed to a hospital for treatment, while seven men and three women died on the spot.
The drivers of the bus and the truck did not die.
