One squeezed to death as truck driver loses control

A woman, Comfort Adeyemi, has been killed by a truck in the Arepo area of Ogun State.

The accident, which occurred around 11am on Sunday, involved a truck marked, LAGOS 199 XH, whose driver allegedly lost control before the tragedy struck

The information has it that the deceased had travelled from Ado-Ekiti to meet her husband in Lagos before her car developed a mechanical fault at the Arepo end of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The deceased’s driver, Taiwo Adeola, said the vehicle had been repaired adding that they were about leaving the area when the trailer rammed into the car while its  container landed on Adeyemi.

The 26-year-old said, “I was the one that drove from Ado-Ekiti to this place. I parked the car by the roadside because it developed a fault. We were done repairing the car and about to leave when the trailer lost control.

“She was the one calling people’s attention to the truck, telling them to run for safety. I was in front of the bonnet and I quickly ran; she wanted to escape through the back of the car before the trailer hit the car and the container fell on her and the car.”
