A woman and her two daughters died in a ghast auto crash which happened on Sunday Boxing day along the Sagamu-Benin Expressway.

Traffic report from the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, indicated that the accident occurred at Old MRS filling station, Itako, in Ijebu Ife area.

The Public Relations Officer, TRACE, Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi said the driver of the Ford SUV with number plate AKD 311 HH in which the late woman and children were travelling was speeding, lost control of the vehicle when he rammed it iinto a stationary Dangote truck with number plate WW 630 XA.

He explained that the corpses of the victims had been deposited at a private morgue in Ijebu Ife.

Akinbiyi added that according to eyewitness account, the ill-fated SUV was on its way from Lagos to the Eastern part of the country.

He said, “It was gathered that the driver of the vehicle was driving the late woman and her two daughters to the East on holidays when the unfortunate crash happened.

“The husband of the woman stays overseas and the driver was employed as the family driver.

“However the accidented vehicles have been taken to Ijebu-Ife Divisional Police Station for further investigation.”

While the TRACE Corps commiserated with family of the  deceased, it warned drivers to eschew speeding and dangerous driving, particularly during this harmatan season, when there’s so much dust haze in the atmosphere,  in view of its attendant consequences.
