Four feared dead as truck pushes bus into river in Ogun

Four persons – two males and two females, were killed on Friday in an accident when a speeding truck pushed a commercial bus off the Kara bridge on Lagos – Ibadan expressway and thrust it into a river beneath it.
The accident which occurred around 10:50am involved a  Sinotruck marked  KMC 47 ZB and
 an Urvan  bus. Two of the  passengers in the bus died at the scene.
The Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Agency(TRACE), who confirmed the auto accident, said the remains of the dead were kept at  the morgue of the  Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, (OOUTH), Sagamu, while the  injured are receiving treatment at the Lagos State Emergency Centre.
According to Babatunde, the truck driver and his boy have also been arrested and detained at the Akute Divisional Police Headquarters, Akute, Ogun State.
“The truck lost control due to over speeding, then hit the Commercial bus beside it, which fell from the kara bridge down, a few metres from the river.
“Out of the six occupants in the Commercial, four  died on the spot and their bodies have  been deposited at  the morgue of the  Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, (OOUTH), Sagamu, while the  injured are receiving treatment at the Lagos State Emergency Centre.
