Three persons riding in a car were crushed to death by a moving train in Ilorin on Sunday
The victims, two young men and a lady, were inside a Toyota Camry car with allfour windows wound up when they were crushed by the moving train said to be coming from the north to Offa, reports Vanguard.

The car was said to have been unknowingly parked on the railway line at Kulende area of Ilorin.

“As the train was fast approaching, several shouts and alerts by the passers by to the three occupants inside the Toyota Camry car to drive away from the railway line failed as they could not hear what the people were saying,” Vanguard quoted an eyewitness to have said.

“Consequently, the oncoming train heavily crushed the car with the occupants, causing commotion and pandemonium in the area.”

The remains of the victims have been taken to University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital.
