Seven people were killed and many injured yesterday in an auto accident at Badeku junction, along Ibadan-Ife road in Oyo State.
An eyewitness said the lone accident occurred about 7:00 a.m. and involved a truck marked OYO NRK 312 YR.
The witness, Tunde Lateef, told newsmen that the truck with some passengers was on high speed towards Ikire road when another truck coming from Badeku village suddenly crossed the expressway.
Lateef said an attempt by the driver of the accidented truck to avert collision with another truck caused it to tumble and flung passengers on board into different directions.
He said Policemen and officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) later arrived at the scene and assisted in taking the victims to hospitals, while the lifeless bodies were seen on ground.
