One killed, five injured in Osun road accident

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Osun has said that one person was killed and five others injured in a road accident which occurred on Thursday in Oriade Local Government Area.

Road safety chief Kudirat Ibrahim said the accident involved a Toyota Sienna with registration number EKY 482GG and a Mercedes truck with registration number BDG 123 XA.

She blamed the accident near Ipetu-Ijesha on excessive speeding and wrongful overtaking.

Those injured were taken to the Wesley Hospital in Osogbo for treatment.

Ms. Ibrahim said his personnel had since cleared the accident site to prevent gridlock on the road. She cautioned motorists to drive with caution to avert accidents.
