Tragedy struck along the Ijebu-Ode-Ore-Benin Expressway in Ogun State as an auto accident claimed the lives of two individuals and left three others injured late Friday night.

The collision, which occurred around 8:24 pm after Ogbere Junction, involved two heavy-duty trucks - a DAF truck with registration number AYE886ZQ and a Volvo truck bearing number plate MUS246YH.

Florence Okpe, the spokesperson for the Ogun State Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), provided details of the incident in a statement issued on Saturday.

According to Okpe, the FRSC Ogbere Outpost Command conducted a rescue operation following the crash, which resulted in the tragic loss of two lives and left three individuals critically injured.

"The injured victims were promptly transported to the State General Hospital, Ijebu Ode, for urgent medical attention. Meanwhile, one of the deceased has been identified and handed over to their family, while the other body has been deposited at the General Hospital morgue in Ijebu-Ode," Okpe stated.

Initial investigations by the FRSC suggest that the crash was likely caused by route violation and speed violation, underscoring the importance of adhering to traffic regulations to prevent such tragic incidents.

In response to the crash, measures were implemented to manage traffic flow and prevent further accidents. The affected section of the expressway was temporarily diverted from inward Benin to outward to facilitate the clearance of the wreckage and ensure the safety of motorists.

As authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision, the community mourns the loss of lives and hopes for the swift recovery of those injured in the accident.
