Couple Escape Death In Terrible Accident On Lagos Expressway

A couple was lucky to escape death on the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway on Sunday as the husband lost control of the wheel while the car was on motion.
The husband, who drove the car, was said to have lost control of the car as he approached the interchange between Abeokuta and Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Sunday evening.

The couple, according to one of Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, stated that the car somersaulted and lost two of its tyres while the driver was trying to gain control of the car.

“We sighted the car from our post. It flipped and slid with its side for few metres. In an attempt to control the car, two tyres burst and the car veered to the other side of the road,” the traffic corps official said.

SR reports that he further confirmed that the couple is alive but suffered varying degrees of injury.

"Both the husband and wife are alive but the wife had fracture and blood was gushing out of her hand," he said. "They were treated at Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta and were transferred to Lantoro hospital for further treatment.”

Presidential hopeful, Omoyele Sowore, who was at the scene of the accident, noted that traffic corps needed to have ambulance attached to them in case accident occurs.

He added that the ambulance would help in knowing the extent of damage incurred by the victims.
