The  Federal Road Safety Corps, Ondo State Sector Command, has confirmed the death of one person in an accident on Wednesday on the Ondo-Ore Expressway.

The FRSC said nine other persons were injured.

The Sector Commander of the corps, Mr Ezekiel Sonallah, said the accident involved 30 people, including 20 male adults, nine female adults and one female child.

He explained that it involved a Toyota Hiace with number plate, LND 998 XY, and a Toyota Previa, marked KAA 762 BT.

He said, “Six male adults and three female adults were injured, while one male adult died at the hospital after personnel of the FRSC rescued the victims.

“The victims were taken to the Ondo State General Hospital, Akure, and some were taken to the FMC Annex, Akure, for treatment, while the only corpse was deposited at the morgue of the general hospital.”
