The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun on Saturday said that two passerbys died while another sustained injuries in a multiple accident at Toll-Gate in Sango-Ota,Ogun.
He said that a Mack tanker with no registration number, coming from Lagos, lost control due to brake failure and rammed into a MACH articulated vehicle.
Oladele said that the victims, who were bystanders, comprised of two male adults who died, while the female adult sustained various degrees of injuries.
“The corpses of the two victims have been deposited at the Ifo General Hospital mortuary, while the injured person is receiving treatment at the General Hospital Ota,” he said.
Oladele said the crash was avoidable if the truck was mechanically sound and roadworthy.
He noted that the accident occurred at a bad spot, which required utmost care while driving around that portion of the road.
