A young girl has reportedly lost her life as a commercial bus rammed into a paint shop at the popular Sharp Corner area, Fajuyi, Ile-Ife, Osun State.

BlazeNewz gathered that the accident which occurred around 8:47am with bus number plate KNR943XA was reportedly on a high speed, lost the vehicle’s control and went off the road.

An eyewitness revealed that about three people including a badly injured young girl were rushed to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex for an emergency treatment.

The eyewitness further explained that two motorcyclists were involved in the accident.

Speaking, owner of the shop said “I have been here earlier this morning and I only left to buy tyre, he (the driver) was on a very high speed to the point that Okada riders had to stop by the road for their safety.”

But the driver of the ill-fated bus identified as Baba Ibeji who was weeping profusely said, “I am a Sabo/Lagere (Inter-city) driver, I took off from Oranfe area and I was heading to Sabo junction to begin the day’s business with the hope of feeding my family, I didn’t intend to kill or injure anyone.

“It all happened when the side door of my bus fell off and hit an Okada rider and his passenger, so I slowed down to check what happened, only to see myself hitting another person before ramming into this shop.
