Three carjackers who were escaping from Ondo to Lagos crashed the stolen Toyota Camry at Ode Remo in Ogun State.
Two of them who survived the crash were promptly arrested in the hospital, where the police had taken them for treatment.
Operatives of Ode Remo police divisional headquarters had initially rescued the three occupants of the car who sustained injuries in the accident.
One of them later died in the hospital.
According to Ogun Police PRO, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspects were receiving treatment when the DPO of Ode Remo division, Fasogbon Olayemi, received an information that the vehicle involved in the accident was snatched at gunpoint.
He said the DPO quickly ordered that they should be placed under arrest right in the hospital.
