SAD! Truck Crushes Motorcyclist, Passenger On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
A motorcyclist and his passenger were not so lucky, as they were crushed to death on motion.
The accident involving a truck and a motorcycle, happened on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Monday.
Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Public Relations Officer of Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), who confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abeokuta, said the incident happened close to a Connoil filling station on the highway.
Akinbiyi said that the accident, which occurred at about 6:20 p.m., was as a result of excessive speed and loss of control on the part of the driver of the truck with registration number JJJ 472 XP.
“The truck hit the motorcycle with no registration number from the back, killing the motorcyclist and his passenger on the spot,” he said.
Akinbiyi added that the truck driver survived the accident while the corpses of the deceased have been deposited at the morgue of Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu.
“TRACE is using this opportunity again to admonish drivers, particularly drivers of articulated vehicles, to avoid excessive speed and give consideration to other road users for the safety of all,” he said.
