Tragedy struck early on Tuesday, resulting in the loss of two lives in separate incidents along the Lagos-Ibadan highway.
According to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), the first collision occurred at midnight near Heyden Petrol Station and involved two adult males.
Florence Okpe, the spokesperson for FRSC in Ogun, emphasized that one person lost their life in the accident, while the second individual emerged unharmed.
Okpe revealed that the vehicle involved in the incident was unidentifiable, suggesting a potential hit-and-run case.
The deceased’s body was transported to the Idera morgue in Sagamu.
The second incident took place around 04:25 am near the Toll gate on the Sagamu-Abeokuta route.
Okpe stated that a Mack tipper truck (JBD483ZY) was involved in the crash and appeared to be speeding, resulting in a loss of control.
“The probable cause of the solo accident was excessive speed, which led to a loss of control and subsequent collision,” explained Okpe.
The crash involved two adult males, with one fatality and the other escaping unscathed.
The deceased’s body was also taken to the Idera morgue in Sagamu.
In response to these incidents, Anthony Uga, the Ogun FRSC Sector Commander, described the crashes as avoidable if caution was exercised and basic traffic rules were followed.
Uga extended sympathies to the victims’ families and advised road users to prioritize safety while traveling.
