Baby, five others die in Lagos-Ibadan Expressway cras

A 14-month-old baby and five unidentified adults on Tuesday died in a fatal auto crash, which occurred at Alapako village on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The Ogere Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Mr. Abdulrahman Sadeeq, who confirmed the incident, said four other persons were seriously injured in the crash which occurred at about 7.30a.m.
Sadeeq told the News Agency of Nigeria on phone that the victims were travelling in a white Mazda bus marked Bayelsa XC 239 YEN from Kano to Lagos, when the bus skidded off its lane and rammed into a ditch at the village.
While attributing the crash to over-speeding and dangerous driving, Sadeeq said a 12-month-old baby boy and three other male adults were injured.
The FRSC official said the dead and injured were conveyed to Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital in Sagamu.
He also said the FRSC would prevent a gridlock from forming on the highway as a result of the crash.
