“We went to the scene and met the crash which involved two trucks and two commercial buses

“A Mazda bus with registration number MAY 152 XA and a Toyota bus with registration number LND 21 XQ were travelling to Ibadan, Oyo State, before they rammed into the trucks.

“We understood that the first truck had broken down in the night and was rammed into by the second truck while the two commercial buses also rammed into the trucks.

“Motorists should desist from travelling at night because visibility is limited. Broken-down trucks should always use reflective signs so that oncoming drivers would be able to see them,” he said.
