At least, four persons including a toddler have lost their lives in an auto crash along Abeokuta-Siun-Sagamu expressway on Saturday morning while travelling for a wedding ceremony in Sagamu.

The incident, it was learnt, occurred at Onipepeye area involving two commercial vechicles, a Nissan Primeria with registration number LAGOS LSD 770 BZ and a Space Wagon with registration LAGOS GGE CD0 CQ.

Three persons were said to have died on the spot while the remaining two died on their way to hospital.

According to an eyewitness account, the driver of the Nissan Primeria lost control, skidded off his lane and had an head-on-collision with the Space Wagon said to be travelling to Abeokuta from Lagos.

He attributed high speed to be the cause of the accident. Sunday Independent further learnt that 10 other persons sustained various degrees of injuries and were taken to hospital for medical attention by the men of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement, TRACE.

The remains of the victims were, however, deposited at the morgue of the General Hospital, Ijaiye Abeokuta.
