It’s that time of the year again when traffic on the roads become heavy and people are unnecessarily in a hurry.

The implication of this is the incidents of avoidable road accidents like the one that happened on Monday morning in Ota, Ogun state.

The accident left one person dead and another injured, according to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

The Ogun Sector Commander of the corps, Mr Clement Oladele, who confirmed the accident, said that the crash occurred at Oju-Ore in Ota, at about 6.20 a.m.

A truck, a motorcycle and four persons were involved in the accident.

The FRSC boss said that the driver of the truck, which was speeding and heading towards Sango-Ota, rammed into an oncoming motorcycle, as he tried to avoid potholes.

“The corpse of the victim has been deposited at the mortuary of the General Hospital, Ota, while the survivor is receiving treatment at the same hospital,” he said.

Officials of the FRSC, the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) and other traffic agencies, had been deployed to the scene of the accident to ensure free flow of traffic.
