Three persons have been confirmed dead following an accident that occurred at Kara bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The accident, which involved five people, had two persons unhurt.

Confirming the accident, Babatunde Akinbiyi, the spokesperson of Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), said the incident happened at 1:20am.

He said the accident involved a blue Iveco truck and a white Toyota Cabster with registration number XUR 601 XY.


Akinbiyi noted that according to a witness, the accident was caused by over-speeding and brake failure on the part of the Toyota Cabster which rammed into the broken-down truck.

He added that the truck was set ablaze by hoodlums who believed the accident was caused by the truck driver.

“It took the intervention of TRACE, police and the Ogun State Fire Service before normalcy could be restored on the Kara bridge for incoming vehicles inbound Lagos at that hour,” Akinbiyi said.


“Police and Ogun state fire service were contacted and the deceased were taken away by their families.”
