One death has been recorded in the multiple accidents that occured on Kara bridge, inward Ibadan, on the the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
About seven vehicles including a container-laden truck were involved in the multiple accidents that have paralysed the free flow of movement and left motorists and travellers on the ever-busy road stranded.
The Ogun State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ahmed Umar, in a statement, said a traffic hawker was killed in the unfortunate accidents, adding that emergency responders are still rescuing those injured.
Umar attributed the accidents to brake failure by the truck whose driver rammed into the vehicles in front of him from behind.
Similarly, a spokesperson for Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Nosa Okunbor, said rescue efforts are ongoing at the scene of the accidents.
The situation, coupled with the repair works ongoing on the road, has caused intense traffic on the expressway, with scores of motorists struggling to find their way out of Lagos.
