truck crushes Motorcyclist, passenger on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway



A motorcyclist and his passenger were on Monday crushed to death in
an accident involving a truck and a motorcycle on the Lagos-Ibadan
Expressway.




My Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Public Relations Officer of
 Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), who confirmed the
incident to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abeokuta, said the incident
happened close to a Connoil filling station on the highway.




Akinbiyi said that the accident,  which occurred at about 6:20pm,
 was as a result of speed and loss of control on the part of the driver
of the truck with registration number JJJ 472 XP.




“The truck had hit the motorcycle with no registration number from
the back,  killing the motorcyclist and his passenger on the spot,” he
said.




Akinbiyi added that the truck driver survived the accident while the
corpses of the deceased were deposited at the morgue of  Olabisi
Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu.




“TRACE is using this opportunity again to admonish drivers,
particularly drivers of articulated vehicles,  to avoid excessive
speed and give consideration to other road users for the safety of all,”
he said.
