Train Crushes Vehicles, Injures Two in Ogun State (Photos)

A ghastly accident was experienced in the Lagos-Abeokuta axis when a train came off its tracks crashing into several vehicles.

A cargo train on Friday crushed a truck belonging to Lafarge Cement and a Toyota Camry.

The accident occurred at a railway crossing at Kila, a border town between Ogun and Oyo States.

The train was said to have ran into the two vehicles at the level- crossing line, causing damage to them and injuring the occupants.

The Lafarge truck with number plate BDG 287 XE was loaded with cement.  Sources said the truck was travelling out of Abeokuta while the Toyota Camry with number plate RSH306KM was on his way to Abekuta.

The drivers of the truck and the Toyota Camry sustained minor injuries. They were said to be recuperating in a hospital in Ibadan.

The Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Agency, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said that the incident was caused by the driver of the train, who failed to hoot while approaching the level-crossing line at Kila.

He said, “We got information that the accident was caused by the driver of the cargo train who failed to give the usual warning signal by hooting while approaching a railway level-crossing line.

“Both the driver of the Lafarge truck and the Toyota Camry were injured and they were said to have taken to an unnamed hospital in Ibadan.”


Akinbiyi said the accident led to a gridlock in this axis.
