Trucks collide into each other, two die in Ogun

Two people were killed after two trucks collided at the Lenuwa axis, outside Jaro Company, on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Wednesday.

The two articulated lorries were traveling inward to Lagos when the incident occurred around 10.25 a.m., according to Babatunde Akinbiyi, spokesman for the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) Corps.

According to Akinbiyi, the accident included a Hanvan lowberg with the number WDE 79 XB and a granite-laden truck with no number plate.

“While the Hanvan lowberg truck was attempting to take a right turn, a loaded granite truck approaching from behind lost control of the truck owing to brake failure and plowed into it on the drivers side, causing fatalities,” Akinbiyi claimed.

“The driver and one other person died,” he continued, referring to the motorboy in the granite-laden truck that triggered the incident.
