11 passengers burnt to death in Ondo Auto crash

No fewer than eleven persons were burnt to death on Sunday in an auto accident in Ore town, along the Benin-Sagamu Expressway in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

It was gathered that the accident involved a Marcopolo luxury bus and a truck.

The victims of the accident were said to have been burnt beyond recognition as the vehicles involved caught fire.

Sikiru Alonge, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) commander, Ore unit, said the accident was caused by “one-way driving”.

He said the truck had a head-on collision with a passenger bus.

“The trailer passed through one way and, in the process, collided with the Marcopolo bus which was coming from Benin road,” Alonge said.

“The bus caught fire in the process.”

He said the incident caused traffic congestion along the route.

“The fire has been extinguished, while the traffic is being controlled on the Benin/Lagos lane,” he added.

“Efforts are on top gear with other security agencies to remove crashed vehicles from the road.”

Alonge urged motorists to always obey all traffic rules to avert further tragedy.
