A mother and her three months old baby and two other people were on Friday crushed to death by a fuel ladened tanker at Oni & Son bus stop, Ring Road, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Reports said the tanker veered off the road after experiencing brake failure near the Palms mall at Ring road. It rammed into a commercial motorcycle that was conveying the lady and her child, killing them and two other bike riders instantly.

The mangled bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the Adeoyo State hospital while firefighters are already on ground to forestall an explosion.

The driver was also said to have rammed into an 18-passenger bus while its passengers were alighting.

Consequently, the driver absconded immediately after the incident.
