At least 10 students of Olabisi Onabanjo University Ogun state lost their lives after a container on a truck fell on the commuter bus they were traveling in, crushing all the passengers and the bus driver to death. This happened along the Sagamu/Benin expressway at Ilishan, very close to Sagamu junction at about 12noon today June 26th. The students were on their way to Lagos when the accident happened.
An eyewitness said the driver of the truck drove against traffic which caused the head on collision with the commuter bus
“I was coming from Sagamu side and saw the accident. I had to hurriedly park my car, run to the scene to see if the passengers could be rescued but unfortunately all the occupants were dead including the driver. The bus was facing Lagos, but I dont know where it was coming from. The driver of the truck carrying an empty container was coming from Sagamu axis but was driving against traffic and that resulted in the collision, which eventually claimed the lives of the innocent people” the eye witness said.
The remains of the victims have been deposited at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, OOUTH, Sagamu.
