A truck crash on Lagos-Ibadan Road results in one death.

A truck conveying humans and animals on Wednesday morning crashed along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, killing one person.

The truck crashed around Sandcrate to Fidiwo at about 6 a.m.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) confirmed that 15 male adults were involved in the crash.

“Seven persons were injured, and one person was recorded dead from the lone crash,” said Florence Okpe, the FRSC spokesperson in Ogun.

According to Okpe, “one vehicle was involved with no registration number on it, a Daf truck conveying both passengers and animals.”

Okpe blamed the lone crash on a tire burst while speeding, which she said led to loss of control.

The FRSC said the injured victims had been taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere for medical attention.

She added that “FRSC operatives are still managing the situation, and traffic has been diverted to the other lane to remove the obstruction off the road.”
