The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Sunday confirmed the killing of a woman in an accident at Toll Gate in Ogun’s Sango Ota region.
Akeem Ganiyu, commander of the FRSC’s Sango-Ota unit, told reporters in Ota that the accident occurred on Sunday.
Ganiyu explained that a truck, registered XC 791 LSR, traveling to Lagos from Abeokuta, had lost control due to brake failure and struck two vehicles and a commercial motorcycle.
He stated that two men and one woman were involved in the accident.
The unit commander stated that the motorcycle passenger had been killed by the truck, while the vehicle passengers had escaped unharmed.
“The body of the victim was then transported to the morgue of Ifo General Hospital in Ogun,” he said.
Ganiyu advised motorists to make sure their vehicles were in good condition before putting them on the road.
He also cautioned against overspeeding, adding that commercial motorcyclists should always use their helmets to avoid head injuries in the event of a collision.
