An elderly man of about 70 years old yesterday survived an accident along side his  younger brother, his driver and a young boy that was in the vehicle with them.

The accident occurred along Sagamu Benin Expressway, about 70 metres to Sagamu, when  the Tyre of the vehicle in which the elderly man was travelling burst.

The man, identified as Chief V.I.M. Onyenorah said: “We are travelling from Imo  State to Lagos State  where we went for  a party during the weekend.

” I was in the vehicle with my younger brother, Engr. Cosmas Onyenorah,  my driver  and one of my workers. What I could recollect was that I heard the sound of the tyre  when it burst and my driver was swerving here and there, trying to control the  vehicle.

“Before the accident, on our way to Lagos I dreamt that the vehicle somersaulted and  I prayed to God to avert it. Thank God, no person died.”

The vehicle, Prado Jeep, Golden colour with Lagos State registration number GY 571  AAA, which summersaulted, was found in the bush.  The vehicle was loaded with  coolers, plates and other utensils that were used for the party.

Meanwhile, a good Samaritan, Mr. Emma Yemi Ademisure, with a Toyota Pick-up van that  has  registration number FJ02LSR drove  them to their hospital in Lagos .

It was reported that the accident occurred because the driver was  over speeding.
