As gathered, the lone accident involved a Ford bus marked GGE 574 Y with 20 people comprising six male adults and 14 female adults.

Confirming the development on Wednesday, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Ogun Sector Commander, Ahmed Umar, said that those who sustained injuries have been taken to hospital for proper medical attention.

According to him, the crash occurred at about 1.30 p.m. around Sandrete on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

He said that a total of 17 people comprising five male adults and 12 female adults were injured, while three persons – a male and two female adults – died in the accident.

“The bodies of the victims have been deposited at the morgue of FOS Hospital, Ipara, Ogun, while the survivors are receiving treatment at Victory Hospital, Ogere,” he said.

Umar who attributed the cause of the accident to tyre burst and excessive speeding cautioned motorists against speed violation and advised them to always check their tyres to know the expiration dates.
