14 Persons Crushed To Death on Ilesa-Akure Expressway

No fewer than fourteen persons lost their lives yesterday evening in a fatal accident that occurred at Erinmo-Ijesha, along Ilesha-Akure Expressway.

Sources revealed that the break system of a truck heading towards Akure failed, causing it to ram several vehicles coming from the opposite direction, killing most of their occupants.

It was gathered that the vehicles the truck ran into, which were heading towards Akure from Ilesha were stopped at a road-block mounted by the Police.

An eyewitness, Mr Saka Temilade, told reporters that “Heavy traffic that was caused by the police on that check point responsible for the fatal accident.

“A truck heading towards Akure with failed break and ran over vehicles already stopped by the policemen.

“We could not even apprehend the driver of the truck, as he disappeared into thin air immediately the accident happened.”

In the meantime, the Osun Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Mr. Peter Oke on Thursday evening confirmed the number of the victims of the accident, and said efforts had been put in place to clear the road for easy vehicular movement.
