A ghastly accident has led to the death of one person in Ogun State after a bus ran into a petrol tanker.

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Ogun says one person died on Saturday in a road accident at Sagamu involving a fuel tanker, an articulated vehicle and a bus.

According to Vanguard, the State FRSC Sector Commander Adegoke Adetunji said no fewer than 11 people also sustained injuries in the accident that an eyewitness said occurred in the midnight.

He said the tanker, loaded with petrol had a mechanical problem and stopped on the road, while the bus and truck rammed into it resulting in explosion.

He said that the tanker caught fire and burnt other two vehicles, noting that the dead and the injured had been taken to hospital.

“We can’t even give you the number plates of the affected vehicles because, by the time we got there, they were all burnt beyond recognition,’’ he said.

Adetunji said the unfortunate accident must have been caused by rate of speed of the vehicle that rammed into it. He advised motorists and commuter to always be alert when driving and avoid speeding.
