Nigeria News - Truck kills couple, two others in Ondo [Photo]
« on: August 12, 2015, 09:42:03 AM »

A truck has reportedly killed a couple and two other people in the Isikan area of Akure, Ondo State.

The accident reportedly occurred on Sunday evening when the driver of the truck,
identified as Friday Ambrose, allegedly lost control of the vehicle and rammed into the couple who were on a motorcycle.

It was gathered that the vehicle also hit two other people who were said to be by the roadside.

An eyewitness, who pleaded not to be named, said the truck was coming from the Arakale area, and heading for one of the saw mills on Ondo Road.

He said, ?The truck with the number plate, Lagos XN 968 AKD, suddenly lost control and swerved off its lane and faced the opposite direction, hitting the victims.

?The victims could not be identified because there was confusion everywhere immediately the accident occurred. But they died instantly as the truck crushed them beyond recognition. However, the driver of the truck came out uninjured.?

When contacted on the telephone, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Mr. Wole Ogodo, confirmed the crash, but said one person died.

According to him, only the rider of the motorcycle, who he identified as Damilola Babatunde, died while a lone passenger was injured.

He said, ?According to the information reaching me, the accident occurred when the truck driver lost control of the vehicle and ran over the motorcycle that was parked beside the road initially injuring the rider and the passenger.

?But the rider, Babatunde, 20, later died in the Specialists Hospital, Akure, while the passenger, whose name and address are unknown, is still receiving treatment at the hospital.?

The PPRO also stated that the driver had been arrested and was still in the custody.
