It was a sad end for three travellers yesterday when a Toyota Sienna car plunged into the Omo River around Area J4 on the Sagamu-Benin expressway.



The incident was confirmed to newsmen by Mrs Florence Okpe, the Public Education Officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun.

She said, “The accident occurred around 11:55 am and the suspected cause of the crash was excessive speed and loss of control which made the vehicle plunge into the river.


“The vehicle marked APP 830 HX was coming from Benin and heading to Lagos.”

The FRSC spokesperson disclosed that the bodies of those dead were deposited at the State General Hospital morgue in Ijebu-Ode.

Okpe added that three male adults were found dead while one person sustained injuries in the lone vehicle accident. The injured have been taken to the hospital for treatment.
