Thirteen Feared Dead As 18-Seater Commuter Bus Rams Into A Stationary Petrol Tanker

No fewer than 13 people were feared dead on Sunday when a fuel tanker rammed into a commercial bus at Odo Oba in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

Although details of the crash are still hazy, the tanker and bus reportedly caught fire immediately.
It was not clear where they were heading to when the crash occurred.

The National Emergency Management Agency confirmed the crash, saying three persons escaped.
It did not, however, state whether they were in the tanker or the bus. But according to Channels Television the Tanker was stationery while it was the bus that ran into it, probably due to over speeding.

Road accidents involving tankers have become rampant in recent months, raising concern about the safety of road users.
