20 December 2016, 11:12

Ondo - 11 people lost their lives, while five others are in a critical condition after a fully-loaded commercial bus collided with a Dangote trailer at the Akintelu end of the Benin-Sagamu Expressway, Punch reports.

The commercial bus, owned by Efex Motors, with number plate, Badagry DG 36 ASJ, was said to be conveying mostly guests of a wedding that held in Benin, the Edo State capital.

They were said to be heading for Lagos on Sunday, when their vehicle collided with the overloaded Dangote Cement trailer, heading towards Ore.

The driver of the Dangote vehicle, identified as Idrisu Oseni, was reported to have immediately fled the scene, along with his motor boy.

Among the deceased were three families, each with three members.

Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Ondo State command, and policemen from the Igbotakun division,  were said to have removed the corpses from the road and deposited them in a morgue.

They also removed the wreckage to clear the traffic that the accident generated according to Daily Post.

The Ondo State FRSC Sector Commander, Osas Osadebamwen, said the accident was caused by the Dangote trailer driver, who “dangerously overtook the Efex bus.”
