An unidentified bus driver has lost his life while 21 people have sustained varying degrees of injury in an accident which occurred on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The accident, according to eyewitnesses, occurred in the early hours of Monday, involving a luxury bus and a truck both of which had no registration numbers.

Confirming the accident in a statement, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun Sector Command Public Education Officer, Florence Okpe said 18 other people escaped unhurt.

Okpe blamed the crash on excessive speed and mechanical deficiency saying "the truck driver rammed into the stationed bus and killed the driver of the bus who was under the bus trying to rectify some issues discovered from the vehicle."

She said the injured victims had been taken to a private hospital in Mowe for medical attention while the corpse was also deposited at the same hospital.
