When contacted,a correspondent of the Kwara State command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), verified the tragedy, saying that the unfortunate occurrence, which took place at approximately 10.30a.m, was as a direct consequence of the excessive speeding of the deceased driver,who was burnt beyond recognition after the vehicle caught fire.
Speaking further,the FRSC representative condemned the incident saying that,"this won't have happened if only the driver was following simple instructions.We have always begged and pleaded with road users to cut back the rate at which they speed on the road because many have died as a result of this approach but they don't want to ever listen.This is very sad".
"The three surviving victims were lucky enough to get out alive due to the quick response and intervention of FRSC officers who got there on time to save them from the ranging inferno, otherwise,they could have been sharing the same fate with the deceased",he affirmed.
