Naijauto has just received reports that one person is confirmed dead and at least two people severely injured from a recent ghastly accident on Lagos-Abeokuta expressway.

Tire burst caused a truck to somersault twice in a horrific accident that claimed one life

Mrs. Temitope Oseni, the commander of the Ogun Compliance corps, confirmed to newsmen that at least two people suffered severe injuries from the accident. She also explained that the accident was caused by a commercial truck that had lost control because of a sudden tire burst.

Mrs. Oseni disclosed that the truck had no registration number but was actually coming from Abeokuta and heading to Sango-Ota when the tire burst caused it to somersault twice leading to the death of the “motor boy” while the truck driver and another passenger only sustained an injury. She claims that the motor boy’s death was a result of him jumping off the vehicle and hitting his head against the tarred road during the accident.

In the reports, Mrs Oseni said;

“The corpse of the victim has been taken for burial by the family members, while the survivors are receiving treatment in a hospital in Ifo, Ogun,”
