The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Ogun State has confirmed the death of two persons in an auto crash along Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Tuesday.
The FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Clement Oladele, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta on Wednesday that the accident occurred at Lamona Park on the expressway.
Oladele said the Volkswagen commercial bus marked LSR 971 XG had 28 passengers, including 16 females and 12 males as well as three children, on board.
He said the accident was caused by a tyre burst which resulted in the vehicle somersaulting.
“Two people died in the accident and their corpses have been deposited at Isara mortuary while the injured were taken to Isara Hospital, Ogere,’’ he said.
Oladele advised motorists to obey traffic regulations and follow instructions from FRSC patrol teams and other sister traffic agencies.
He also urged motorists driving into construction areas to obey the maximum speed limit of 50km per hour stipulated on road signs along the corridors and avoid overtaking.
