Pregnant Woman Dies, Daughter Injured In Car Crash
Tragedy struck on Sunday on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway after a pregnant woman died in a car accident which happened at the Ikeja Along bus stop.
The deceased’s husband, identified as Femi Ajayi, and their five-year-old daughter, Darasimi Ajayi, were said to have sustained injuries in the crash which occurred around 10pm.
“The CRV driver was speeding. He did not stop after hitting the jeep, which lost control and somersaulted to the other side of the road where a Tata bus was. The whole thing happened very fast and the woman died instantly.“Everybody was afraid to assist them until emergency agencies came. What really pained me is the death of the woman because she was pregnant.”
“The woman was sitting on the front seat while the child was at the back. I have a feeling that she did not use the seat belt because she hit her head against the dashboard. Her daughter and husband only sustained minor injuries,” he said.
“An alert was received by the agency at about 10.30pm that a Nissan Pathfinder with number plate, KSF 876 DQ, skidded off its normal route and collided with a Tata bus marked, Lagos AKD 21 XC, on the other side of the road.“Unfortunately a young woman died instantly while the husband and their five-year-old girl survived with minor injuries and were moved to LASUTH for treatment.”
