The Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, TRACEC, says an articulated vehicle crushed a man to death in an accident at Toll-Gate, on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

Three other persons were also injured in the accident which occurred on Saturday, at about 5:06 am.

According to the South-West Area Commander of TRACEC, Mr Adekunle Ajibade, who spoke to newsmen in Ota, Ogun State, the vehicles coming from Sango-Ota to Lagos lost control due to speeding and rammed into four persons waiting to board a bus at Toll-Gate.

He added that the unfortunate incident resulted in the death of a man while three others sustained varying degrees of injuries in the fatal accident.

“The corps of the victims have been deposited at the morgue in Ifo General Hospital, Ogun, while the survivors are receiving treatment at Ota General Hospital,” he said.

Ajibade cautioned motorists, especially truck drivers, against speeding to prevent avoidable crashes.

He also reiterated the commitment of the agency to embark on more patrols to check the excesses of drivers and reduce crashes in 2024.
