Truck Kills Nursing Mother In Ogun

An unidentified woman has been reportedly killed by a truck while crossing the road around Siun-Sagamu-Abeokuta Expressway on Saturday. The truck, after killing the woman who was said to be nursing a three-month baby, hit two other men. Babatunde Akinbiyi, public relations officer, Ogun state traffic compliance and enforcement corps, said the accident occurred around 9 am and the ill-fated vehicle was a Mercedes Actros truck with number plate PKP 464 XA. “The information gathered by our operatives at the scene of the accident indicated that the driver of the truck was speeding. “After it killed the woman, the truck hit two other men who sustained injuries.” Akinbiyi said the driver ran away immediately after the auto crash, while police had towed the truck to the station. He said the body of the victim had been handed over to her family because doctors at the Olabisi Olabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, were on strike.   By Tony Nwanne
