FRSC Confirms Death of 3 Persons in Kwara Multiple Auto Crash

Date: 2024-01-17

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Kwara Command, has confirmed the death of three persons in an accident involving four vehicles on the Olooru/Okoolo axis of the state.

The State Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr  Stephen Dawulung, who confirmed the accident to newsmen on Tuesday in Ilorin, said it occurred about 3.00pm, on Monday.

Dawulung explained that those who died got burnt during the crash.

According to him, on the receipt of the report of the crash, the FRSC rescue operatives in the state were immediately mobilised to the crash scene.

”We worked in conjunction with operatives of the Nigeria Police Force and the Federal Fire Service to rescue some passengers before the fire ignited”.

He added that preliminary investigations revealed that a vehicle conveying feeds, en route Lagos, attempted to overtake another vehicle, but collided with an oncoming trailer conveying brewery products.

”Meanwhile another tanker carrying petroleum products was closely following the tanker carrying brewery products and crashed into the pre-existing accident, leading to a multiple crash.

”The multiple vehicles’ collision ignited a fire that escalated due to the presence of petroleum products, and the inferno burnt the three vehicles and a motorcycle which got caught up in the crash,” he explained.

The sector commander disclosed that five persons were involved in the crash, adding that two were passengers on a motorcycle.

He said that other victims of the crash, aside from those who were burnt to death, sustained various degrees of injuries and were taken to the General Hospital, Ilorin.

He also said the remains of those who lost their lives had been claimed by their relatives.

Dawulung said the fire that erupted as a result of the crash had since been put out while the clearing of obstructions in the area was ongoing.

”The corps commiserates with the families of the departed and wishes the injured quick recovery while reminding all road users to avoid speed and exercise caution.

”We wish to use this medium to remind drivers always to maintain a safe distance between them and vehicles ahead, to create a cocoon of safety to manoeuvre in case of crash or any other occurrence,”
