No fewer than 22 persons narrowly escaped death in an auto crash in front of the Mountain Top University, Kara Ibafo area of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in Ogun State.

The spokesperson for the Federal Road Safety Commission in the state, Florence Okpe, who confirmed the crash to our correspondent on Sunday, said the accident involved 17 males and five females.

Okpe added that the accidents occurred between two vehicles: a Toyota Highlander with registration number KSF 461DM, and an 18-seater bus marked AAA 859 XM.

She said the cause of the accident was a loss of control on the part of the Toyota Highlander’s driver, causing it to crash into the fully loaded bus.

The FRSC spokesperson added that nine individuals who sustained varying degrees of injury have been taken to AZ Zonecare Hospital in the Magboro area of the state.

However, Okpe appealed to motorists to always maintain a controllable speed to guard against negative occurrences.

“Apart from conducting routine checks every morning and whenever your car is about to move, always maintain a controllable speed in case of any eventuality.

“The nine injured persons in the accident comprising 17 males and five females, have all been taken to AZ Zonecare Hospital in the Magboro area of the state.”
