The Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) on Tuesday confirmed the death of a driver in a lone accident on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Mr Olusola Ojuoro, Mowe-Ibafo Divisional Commander of the corps, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the incident happened at about 6.03 a.m, adding that two other persons sustained injuries.
Ojuoro explained that the accident occurred when the driver of a car marked KMR508XA going to Lagos lost control due to a punctured tyre and ran into the bush.
He said the body of the victim had been taken to Idera Hospital, Ogun State, while the survivors are receiving treatment at the same hospital.
Ojuoro noted that the road crash could have been averted if the driver was not speeding. He cautioned motorists against speeding.
