A commercial motorcyclist has been crushed to death in an accident involving two trucks and a  Mercedes Benz car at Ifo on the Lagos- Abeokuta Expressway today.

Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Public Relations Officer of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abeokuta saying a Mack truck without registration number and a  Mercedes Benz car marked EG 283 KJA had earlier been involved in an accident on Sunday night and had been left on the highway.

The TRACE spokesman said the driver of a Iveko truck marked AAA 921 XA, who was travelling early Monday  morning, lost control of the vehicle and crushed the motorcycle registered as FKJ 880 QB  against the two stationary vehicles.  The commercial motorcyclist was said to have been killed on the spot.
