Four persons have died in a road carnage on Thursday along Benin/Owo express road in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

Besides, 14 persons sustained serious injuries in the accident, which involved a Toyota Hiace and another J5 bus coming from opposite directions.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Femi Joseph, who confirmed the accident said the incident happened between 3.00 and 4.00pm.

He said the two vehicles had a head-on collision and got burnt with the passengers on board.

Ogodo said the victims of the accident were taken to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo for medical treatment, while mangled bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the morgue of the hospital.
