Tragedy struck Sunday afternoon in Ilorin as three persons inside a car were crushed to death by a moving train.

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.

With the car’s windows wound up, the three occupants of the car unknowingly parked on the railway line at Kulende area of Zango as they were said to be carried away by what they were doing in the car.

An eye witness said: “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.

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

The incident which occurred at the rail line at Kulende area of the state capital caught many by surprise  as such incident had never happened in the area since the existence of the railway line.

The remains  of the victims were immediately taken to University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital as at press time.

Residents of the area were seen discussing the tragedy in groups when Vanguard visited yesterday.
