0
Tragedy struck on Sunday on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway
after a pregnant woman died in a car accident which happened at the Ikeja Along
bus stop.
The deceased’s husband, identified as Femi Ajayi, and their
five-year-old daughter, Darasimi Ajayi, were said to have sustained injuries in
the crash which occurred around 10pm.
Punch Metro learnt that Femi was in a Nissan Pathfinder with
his family inward Oshodi when a CRV car rammed into his vehicle and made him lose
control.
While the driver of the CRV sped off, the family’s car was
said to have skidded off the road and rammed into a 48-seater Tata bus on the
other side of the road.

A Punch correspondent learnt that the pregnant woman, whose name
had yet to be ascertained, died on the spot and her corpse was taken to the
morgue in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.
An eyewitness, Yusuf Tiamiyu, said the accident was caused
by the CRV driver, whom he said was driving on top speed. Tiamiyu, who is a
commercial driver, added that people were reluctant to assist the victims for
fear of being implicated by the police.
He said, “The CRV driver was speeding. He did not stop after
hitting the jeep, which lost control and somersaulted to the other side of the
road where a Tata bus was. The whole thing happened very fast and the woman
died instantly.
“Everybody was afraid to assist them until emergency
agencies came. What really pained me is the death of the woman because she was
pregnant.”
Another eyewitness, Olaitan Aderemi, said the woman hit her
head against the dashboard adding that her husband and the daughter escaped
with minor injuries.
“The woman was sitting on the front seat while the child was
at the back. I have a feeling that she did not use the seat belt because she
hit her head against the dashboard. Her daughter and husband only sustained
minor injuries,” he said.
The General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management
Agency, Mr. Michael Akindele, said policemen from the state traffic division
and officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps also responded to the incident.
Akindele said, “An alert was received by the agency at about
10.30pm that a Nissan Pathfinder with number plate, KSF 876 DQ, skidded off its
normal route and collided with a Tata bus marked, Lagos AKD 21 XC, on the other
side of the road.
“Unfortunately a young woman died instantly while the
husband and their five-year-old girl survived with minor injuries and were
moved to LASUTH for treatment.”
The FRSC Ikeja Unit Commander, Mr. Wale Odekunle, equally
confirmed the incident saying “the pregnant woman died instantly.”
