The accident involved an ash colour Nissan Sharon car.
An eyewitness said the vehicle’s driver, who was said to be traveling from Osogbo to Odeomu, was at high speed, lost control and fell into a ditch.
The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Osun State, Henry Benamaisai confirmed that the incident happened on Saturday.
