More than 36 people were on Saturday feared dead as two passenger buses collided and caught fire at a quarry site at Kilometre 96, on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
 
According to an eyewitness, the two 18-seater buses had a head-on collision and the buses caught fire immediately.
 
“All the passengers in the two buses were burnt beyond recognition.

“Only a baby escaped death because the father threw him out through the window of the bus,’’ the witness told the News Agency of Nigeria.
 
When contacted, the Oyo State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Mr. Yusuf Salami, confirmed the accident on telephone.
 
Salami, however, said he had yet to be briefed on the casualty figures, but confirmed that the accident involved two 18-seater buses.
