No fewer than four persons have been killed in a road accident when a driver rammed his car into a moving truck while pressing phone along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The accident, which occurred opposite Mountain Top University, around Rain Oil Petrol Station in the early hours of Saturday, involved a Lexus RX350 car with registration number, KTU738HM, and a Mack marked, T21024LA.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) confirmed that a total of six male adults were involved; “two persons were unhurt while four were recorded dead from the crash.”

The Ogun FRSC spokesperson, Florence Okpe, said: “The suspected causes of the fatal crash were excessive speed, use of phone while driving, which led to loss of control on the part of the Lexus driver and he rammed into a moving truck.”

Okpe explained that the remains of the dead victims were deposited at the Real Divine Hospital morgue in Ibafo.

However, the FRSC Sector Commander FRSC in Ogun, Ahmed Umar, has cautioned motorists on the use of phone while driving and the dangers associated with such.
