“The corpse of the dead victim has been taken to the morgue, while the injured was rushed to Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa for treatment.
“It was a lone accident. A light blue Commercial Vehicle with registration number EKY 940 XW collided with a truck due to over-speeding and disobedience to road traffic regulations.
“We have cleared the area to enable free flow of traffic without any gridlock, while our patrol team and Zebra 19 Ambulance took the corpse to the mortuary,’’ the statement read in part.
