A truck has crushed an FRSC officer to death during inspection
An officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) was crushed to death on Sunday in an accident that occurred in the Orile area of Lagos State.
The deceased officer, Abiodun Ajomole, was reportedly attending to a commercial bus driver when a truck lost its brake and rammed into him and the commercial bus.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Lagos State Sector Command confirmed the death of the officer and added that he was on official duty when the accident happened.
The FRSC spokesperson stated that ” Investigations carried out so far indicated that the affected Marshal was attending to an LT Volkswagen bus with registration number AKD 108 XY blue colour when a Mack truck with no number plate attached failed to brake and rammed into the LT Volkswagen the Marshal was attending to. ”
“This forcefully crashed the LT bus and caused the LT Bus to ram the Marshal against a stationary Matrix tanker by the roadside, thereby squeezing him to death.”
“The three (3) vehicles involved in the crash have been towed to Oril Iganmu police division, while the remains of the Marshal have been deposited at the Yaba mortuary.”
In the meantime, the Police have since swung into action to trace the whereabouts of the driver of the Mack truck who was responsible for the crash as further investigations are being conducted.” Sonusi stated
