Two commercial motorcyclists and the passenger in an unregistered Toyota Camry car lost their lives in Osogbo on Monday when the driver of the car lost control and crushed the motorcyclists.
According to witness accounts, the accident happened at about 4:45 p.m. at Heritage Junction on the Gbongon-Osogbo road.
The accident was said to have been caused because of over-speeding by the driver, who lost control and rammed into a street light, causing the car to somersault.
When a correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria visited the scene of the accident, a motorcycle could still be seen trapped under the car.
