The driver of the Camry car, however, took to his heels immediately after the incident.

A witness at the scene of the incident, said that the car was heading toward Ijede, a community in Ikorodu and was on top speed, making it impossible for the driver to control the vehicle before it rammed into the tricycle, which was heading to Ikorodu Garage.

The crash occurred near Cele Bus-Stop at Ijede in the Ijede Local Council Development Area.

NAN learnt that police operatives later came to the scene of the accident and towed the tricycle and the car to the police station in Ijede.
