Fourteen persons yesterday lost their lives in a fatal motor accident along Ife-Ibadan Expressway.

It was gathered that the victims were burnt beyond recognition in the accident which occurred at Moremi Estate Junction, Opposite Energy Filling Station, along Ibadan-Ife Road early yesterday morning.

The accident involved an 18-passenger Urvan commercial bus plying Ore/Ondo-Ibadan Expressway and a diesel-laden white colour truck with a Lagos registration number: MUS 702 XH.

We gathered that no sooner the truck had negotiated a very sharp bend than the bus, which was coming in top speed, rammed into it. The crash sparked fire immediately.

The passengers in the bus were trapped and could not escape because the engine of the truck pummelled the bus so much that they could not find their way out immediately, until they were consumed by the raging inferno.

We further gathered that nine passengers died on the spot, including six adults and three children.  They were burnt beyond recognition. Three passengers got timely intervention of Seventh Day Adventist Hospitals, where they were rushed to for treatment, but one of them died later.  The Osun State Sector Commander of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Anthony Oko, who confirmed the accident, said the survivors, who sustained critical injuries, had been taken to the hospital for treatment.
