“The yet-to-be-identified injured truck driver conveying the 40 feet container that crushed two vehicles which left one driver dead, was hurriedly ferried to the Trauma Centre.

“Remains of the late driver of one of the vehicles, one Mr Lawal, has been claimed by his relatives as the agency worked assiduously to evacuate all impediments from the road,” he said.

He also said the affected vehicles have been evacuated with the agency’s light and heavy-duty equipment.
