Car Set Ablaze For Crushing Two To Death In Ondo


The Ondo State Police Command on Monday said it has started investigation on the road accident that occurred at the Ademulegun area of Ondo town, Ondo State, on Saturday evening.

The state Police Public Relations Officer Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami confirmed the accident, which involved a Toyota Camry car and a tricycle which reportedly claimed two lives while four other persons sustained injuries.

Residents of the area went on a rampage as they set the car ablaze following the disappearance of the driver of the vehicle.

It was gathered that the driver of the car, who was allegedly reckless in driving, swerved off his lane to hit the deceased inside the tricycle and injure four other people.

A source said, “The driver jumped out of the car and ran away after the accident had occurred. The escape of the driver infuriated the residents of the area to set the vehicle ablaze.”

The source said it was men of the Federal Road Safety Corps that deposited the corpses in the morgue of General Hospital in Ondo while other surviving victims were taken to the Trauma Centre for treatment.

The PPRO said the command had begun the trail of the fleeing driver while the investigation was ongoing.

“We have begun to look for the driver and we will ensure we apprehend him while we continue with the investigation,” the police spokesperson said.
