Scene of the incident
DAILY POST reports that the crash involved an Iveco truck, with registration number, KSF 209 XY.
The Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement (TRACE) Corps Spokesperson, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said two trucks were competing, driving recklessly and lost control.
One of the trucks, in the process, rammed into a shop and a building, killing the woman.
Akinbiyi said: “According to eyewitnesses, two trucks were competing for lane, as if on a track race when suddenly, in attempt to avoid an object, the one on the outer lane swerved towards the inner truck and which also in an attempt to avoid the outer one, rammed into the shop and house by the road, killing a woman, who had just had her bath, and trying to apply make-up.
“The driver of the truck ran away to avoid a mob who were desperate to kill him and set the truck ablaze, but for the quick intervention of TRACE Corps operatives and police operatives from Obada-Oko Divisional Police Station,” he said.
