    Photos: 12 People Roast To Death In Ife Road Accident

    At least 12 people including children and women were said to have been burnt to death in a road accident which occurred along Ife/Ibadan expressway, Ile Ife around 12pm on Sunday.

    According to an eyewitness, the accident which involved one 18 seater bus and a Diesel laden tanker was said to have occurred when the bus collided with the tanker and the two exploded, leaving passengers trapped within and burnt beyond recognition.

    The eyewitness stressed that the sad incident could have been averted if not for the impatience of the Ondo/Ore commercial bus driver with Registration Number; MUS 702 XH who was said to be driving towards Ibadan on a very high speed.

    Report has it that the late response of the fire fighters and other rescue officials made the casualties that much as most of the deceased were chocked to death by the flame and smoke which erupted from the fire.

    However, three survivors were said to have been rescued by sympathizers who squeezed them out by tearing the vehicle with axes and other tools. They were said to have been rushed to a private facility in Ile Ife, though one of the victims was reported to have died on arrival.

    Usman Drisu, FRSC Sector Head of Operations, Ile Ife who visited the scene confirmed the incident while he sympathized with the families of the victims.

    Usman however urged drivers and other road users be patience and careful especially on the highways.
