Scene of the accident

The university community of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, was thrown into mourning yesterday as a trailer lost control and rammed into a roadside market. 

An eyewitness, Mr. Muritala Rauf, recounted that the truck, which was coming from Ikare axis of the road, lost control while its driver was attempting to dodge a car near the market.

Rauf disclosed that the incident killed five people instantly while several traders and passersby who were severely injured had been taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Another witness, Mrs. Iyabo Adewale, noted that the casualties would have been more than the number recorded if students of Adekunle Ajasin University were not on holiday. She added that men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the police promptly intervened to rescue the victims and forestall any outbreak of law and order in the community. 

Another auto crash occurred at Ajebamidele axis of Benin-Ore-Lagos Expressway in Odigbo LGA of the state, resulting in the death of two persons. It was gathered that the Ore road accident involved a black SUV and blue Sienna bus, and was caused by reckless overtaking, which led to a head-on collision.
