A ghastly motor accident involving two vehicles occurred  at Aperin Road along the Ijebu-Ode-Ibadan Expressway in Ogun State on Tuesday, killing two persons and leaving 16 others  with various degrees of injuries.

The accident involved a Sienna vehicle with registration number SMK 760 AP and a Mercedes Benz lorry with registration number XV 353 MUS.

It was gathered that the Sienna, which took off from Ijebu-Ode heading to Ibadan, had a burst tyre leading to a head-on collision with the lorry.

Premium Times reports:

The driver and a passenger in front of the vehicle were said to have died on the spot, while 16 others from both vehicles sustained serious injuries.

The corpses of those who lost their lives had been deposited at the Ijebu-Ode General Hospital, while the injured were receiving treatment in the same hospital.

One of the survivors, Rebecca John, while narrating how the accident happened, said that she was travelling with her family members.

“We were going to Ibadan to attend the on-going convention of the Gospel Faith Mission International, before the accident happened,” she said.

The Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Wellington Ogunsanya, who confirmed the death of the two persons, said that their bodies had been deposited at the hospital’s mortuary.

He said that out of the 12 victims who were brought to the hospital, seven sustained serious injuries.
