A pregnant lady identified as Ginika Ikegwuonu Okechukwu has died alongside her driver while her 3 kids are currently in critical condition in a car ghastly accident that reportedly occurred in Ore, Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, on Monday January 6th.
The Ondo State Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, revealed that the fatal road crash happened around 7.40am at the Ore tollgate on the Ore- Sagamu Expressway and it involved a Lexus SUV with number plate KTU 141 FX and a truck with number plate EPE 72 SB.
According to reports, a second accident occurred at Kilometre 115 on the Ore – Sagamu Expressway, just a few metres away from the Ore tollgate around 1 pm. It was gathered that 9 persons were involved in the crash out of which one was killed and 6 others were seriously injured. The accident reportedly involved a Toyota Sienna space bus, which suffered a tyre blowout and the driver lost control of the car, which according to eyewitnesses, somersaulted several times .
Mr Segun Ogungbemide, the Head of FRSC Operations in the state, who confirmed the accidents, revealed that they occurred as a result of over-speeding, adding that the death bodies had been deposited in the morgue of the Ore General Hospital, while the injured victims were rushed to the same hospital.
“The two fatal accidents are avoidable, because they occurred as a result of excessive speed by the drivers of the vehicles,” Ogungbemide stated.
Segun urges motorists to always comply with road rules and regulations and avoid over-speeding.
Friends of the late pregnant woman have since taken to Facebook to mourn her. One of the mourners named Onyinye Agbai, disclosed that the Lexus SUV was a brand new gift the deceased received from her husband.
