According to him, a witness told TRACE officials that the car hit the motorcycle towards the side of the truck which unknowingly crushed the motorcyclist to death.
“The corpse of the motorcyclist has been taken to a nearby hospital morgue, in Mowe, Ogun, by the police,” he said.
Olusola said that the accident scene had been cleared off to ease the free flow of traffic.
He advised motorists and motorcyclists to always exercise patients on the road to avoid unnecessary loss of life.
This occurred just a few hours after another accident happened in Anambra State. Two persons were said to be dead in the accident that involved a bus and two motorcycles along Awka-Onitsha expressway, Anambra, on Sunday night.
Mr. Andrew Kumapayi, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), confirmed the incident to news reporters in Awka on Monday. He stated the cause of the accident to be over speeding. The accident allegedly occurred around 7 pm
The FRSC boss noted that 13 people, eight male adults, and five female adults, were involved in the accident, which claimed two lives.
“The bus driver and the riders of the motorcycles were reportedly on top speed and had a head-on-collusion which caused the death of two male adults, while three female adults sustained injuries.
“The victims were rushed to Iyeanu hospital in Ogidi and the dead victims were handed over to their families after being confirmed dead by the doctors,’’ he said.
Kumapayi said that the Nigeria Police Force took the vehicle and motorcycles to their station for further investigation.
While condoling with the families of the dead, he warned motorists against excessive speeding, especially within built-up areas.* ADS**
