A yet- to- be identified woman has been feared dead, while 12 other persons were injured in an accident which occurred at Adeyemi College of Education along Ore road in Ondo.

An eye witness, one Ayo Idowu, told our correspondent that the incident which happened around 11:45am involved a Toyota Hiace bus with number plate SMK 996 XS, a Ford Jeep with number plate MUS 420 GQ and a tricycle with number plate NND 861 WL

The driver of the Toyota bus, whose identity could not been ascertained as at the time of filing this report was said to have rammed into the Ford Jeep and also hit the tricycle from the rear.

The Metro gathered that the bus driver was trying to evade arrest by Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) on the road at Adeyemi junction, when his brake failed.

Idowu added that the driver also rammed into a trailer after which he alighted from the bus and took to his heels.

It was learnt that the trailer stopped the bus from further crashes before the students came out enmasse to block the road, preventing other vehicles from passing.

The angry students were said to have warned the VIO or any other law enforcement agencies to desist from mounting road blocks at the front of the school.

”We will write the agencies not to come here and conduct any vehicles’ checking again, saying this is dangerous especially for the students, ” they said.

The corpse of the woman has been deposited at the morgue , while the injured victims are undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Meanwhile, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Osun State has said that no fewer than 194 persons were involved in road accident in the state.

The Corps also said that 13 people died, while 112 people sustained various degrees of injuries in road accidents in January.

The Command’s spokesperson, Mrs Agnes Ogungbemi, made this known in a statement issued and made available to newsmen in Osogbo.

“FRSC men were able to rescue 69 people alive in 42 accidents scenes, involving 42 road traffic crashes (RTC).

“Although 42 different road accidents, involving 63 vehicles and 194 people were booked, we were able to save the lives of 69 people,” she said.

According to her, the accidents occurred due to non-compliance with road traffic regulations on the highways.

She advised road users to be careful and be more conscious while driving in order to avert an accident.

Ogungbemi said that the command would continue to engage stakeholders on road safety matters to ensure that the road is safe for driving.

She added that any motorists that violate the road traffic regulations would be penalised in accordance with the Laws.)
