A 14-month-old baby and five unidentified adults on Tuesday died in a fatal auto crash which occurred at Alapako village on the Lagos- Ibadan expressway.
The Ogere Unit Commander of the FRSC, Mr Abdulrahman Sadeeq, who confirmed the incident, said four other persons were seriously injured in the crash which occurred at about 7:30 am.
Sadeeq told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on phone that the victims were travelling in a white Mazda bus marked Bayelsa XC 239 YEN heading to Lagos from Kano.
The bus, according to him, skidded off its lane and rammed into a ditch at the village.
While attributing the crash to over-speeding and dangerous driving, Sadeeq said a 12-month-old baby boy and three other male adults were injured.
The FRSC officials said the victims were conveyed to Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital in Sagamu.
He also said the FRSC would work tirelessly to ensure that the accident did not cause a gridlock on the highway. (NAN)
