Seven persons, including a pregnant woman, were crushed to death in an accident involving a white Volvo truck and a red Nissan Bluebird along OGTV/Ajebo road in Abeokuta, Ogun state.

Clement Oladele, the sector commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun, told NAN that the incident happened on Tuesday night.

He said the truck had brake failure and lost control which led to a head-on collision with the Bluebird car coming from opposite direction.

“The truck was coming from OGTV road going into Abeokuta, while the car was going to Mile 6. The truck had brake failure, lost control and crossed to the opposite lane and hit the oncoming vehicle,” he said.

“The accident involved nine people – seven males, one female and one child, but five males, one female and one child died in the accident.

“The only dead female victim was pregnant.”

The sector commander said the corpses of the victims were taken to the mortuary in Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Abeokuta, while those injured were admitted to the same hospital.

He said the driver of the truck who caused the accident had fled.
