About 36 travellers were on Saturday burnt to death after a head-on collision involving two buses at Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

According to an eye witness’ account, the accident ocurred at a Quarry site at Km 96 as the two 18-seater buses had a head-on collision and the buses caught fire immediately.

The witness said, “All the passengers in the two buses were burnt beyond recognition.

“Only a baby escaped death because the father of the child threw him out through the window of the bus.”

The Oyo State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Yusuf Salami, confirmed the accident to journalists.

He, however, said he had yet to be briefed on the casualty figures, but confirmed that the accident involved two 18-seater buses.
