A pedestrian was killed after a truck conveying sacks of grain derailed off the Lagos-Ibadan road today Wednesday, February 3.
The driver of the truck reportedly lost control of the wheel and veered off the road. Sadly, the pedestrian who was walking by the side of the road was hit and crushed to death. The body has since been removed from the road.
The sad occurrence has caused a huge traffic along the expressway. Some operatives of the Nigeria Police, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), and other agencies have arrived the scene to restore normal flow of traffic. Efforts are also being made to remove the faulty truck and its content from the road.
