Truck crushes tricyclist to death in Ibadan

A tricyclist, who was later identified as Kayode, has been crushed to death in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The newsmen gathered that the middle-aged man was crushed to death on Thursday during a road accident involving an articulated truck and three commercial tricycles.

The incident occurred around Airport junction, Alakia, Ibadan.

Sources disclosed that the truck ran over the head of the victim, after it rammed into three of the commercial tricycles where they were parked.

The accident was due to excess speed by the truck driver.

Angry youths who stormed the scene of the incident captured the driver of the truck when he was trying to escape.

The driver was later handed over to the police from Egbeda Divisional Police Headquarters located at Gbagi area of Ibadan.

The damaged tricycles were also towed to the police station.

However, all efforts made by the newsmen to get reactions from both the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the State’s Police Command proved abortive since Thursday.
