Multiple accidents occurred at Odo Oba area of Oyo-Ogbomoso road early morning on Sunday, which involved several articulated vehicles and commuter buses.

Our correspondent learnt that the early morning downpour caused the Odo-Oba river to overflow resulting in vehicles being partly submerged.

It was gathered that several vehicles ran into themselves while a number of people were trapped in their vehicles. As at the time of filing this report, the number of people involved  has not been established.

The Odo-Oba area is a constant scene of multiple accidents because of the narrow bridge and constant overflow of water.

This year, a footballer with Crown FC of Ogbomoso  died in the river when a bus he was travelling in plunged in. His colleague in the same bus had to swim ashore to escape be‎en swept away.

Details soon.
