Four persons die in accident on Ilesa-Ife expressway



No fewer than four persons were feared dead yesterday in a head on collision involving an 18 seater passenger bus and a Sienna space bus at Ileki -Ijesa along Ilesa-Ife Expressway .

The accident happened close to the National trailers and haulage vehicles park which is still under construction.

Eye witnesses told Orange FM that the driver of the Akure bound passenger bus in a bid to evade bad portions on its lane abandoned his right of way to face the traffic heading in the opposite direction resulting in the crash.

Personnel of the Federal Roads Safety Corps FRSC and sympathisers quickly rushed to the scene to move the survivors to hospital for prompt medical attention.

It took the intervention of the FRSC officials to clear the road for smooth flow of vehicular movement.

Orange FM crew arrived the scene just as other road users were urging drivers to adhere strictly to traffic codes as the yuletide sets in .
