At least five persons were confirmed dead, while two others were critically injured in an accident which occurred at the early hours of Tuesday in Ogun state.
The crash which occurred around 7: 25a.m at the Orile-Imo village along the Abeokuta-Siun-Sagamu expressway, involved a black-coloured Honda E.O.D car with registration number: (LAGOS) EKY 365 FB and a Subaru car marked: (LAGOS) KTU 246 AT.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the accident occurred when the Honda E.O.D car going outward Abeokuta lost control, skidded off its lane to the other side and collided with the Subaru car going inward Abeokuta, thereby resulting in the instant death of four men.
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the state Traffic Compliance and Enforcement agency (TRACE), Babatunde Akinbiyi who confirmed the accident, also said that the fifth person died while the victims were being taken the hospital for treatment.
Attributing the cause of the crash to over-speeding, Akinbiyi also explained that all the deceased were occupants of the Subaru car, while the two occupants of the Honda car escaped unhurt.
TRACE PRO however, explained that the two critically injured have been taken to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu for treatment, while corpses of the deceased were also deposited at the morgue of the same hospital.
