A 26-year-old student of the Lagos State University (LASU), Ademola Ayinla Timothy, and two others have died in an accident along the Sagamu-Benin highway.
The accidents involved a Lexus SUV marked BDG 979 HD, a Geon truck registered as LAR 730 XB, and a Toyota Sienna car.
Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer Omolola Odutola confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abeokuta on Wednesday.
Odutola said the crash occurred at 6:45 am before the Babcock University junction along the expressway.
Odutola blamed the crash on reckless driving on the part of the driver of the Lexus.
“The fatal accident occurred when the driver of the Lexus car drove recklessly and rammed into the moving truck, and, as a result, the Lexus somersaulted,” she explained.
According to her, the Sienna hit the Lexus as well, trapping it and its occupants.
She explained further: “Ademola Ayinla Timothy was rescued and rushed to the hospital, but he did not make it; all affected and damaged vehicles have been evacuated and recovered to the station.”
