It was a sorry state at Our Lady of FATIMA CATHOLIC HOSPITAL, Jaleyemi, Osogbo on Monday when over 10 teenage students of TOP TREND COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL, Osogbo were rushed to the hospital having sustained various injuries in a fatal accident at Owode along Osogbo/Ilesha road.
Three Oâ€™Yes Ambulances of the State of Osun rushed the students to the hospital in the evening. There was pandemonium as the Nurses and Doctors in the female, male and children wards were quickly withdrawn to attend to the students who sustained serious injuries.
It was reported that the students of the TOP TREND who had closed for the day were going towards Ilesha from Osogbo in their school bus when a car from opposite direction lost control and hit their 14 passenger bus.
The driver of the school bus who was popularly known as Baba could not survive the accident as he died few hours after he was brought to the hospital. His two legs according to a report was mutilated and was said to also have internal bleeding.
One of the parents of the students whose daughter sustained leg injury said she was sorry for Baba because he was said to be a caring father who would always pay visit to parents of any student who did not come to the school the previous day. Other staff of the school described the driver as a nice man who had been working with the school for a very long time until his last day yesterday.
SOJ Worldwide visited the hospital in the evening to see some of students who sustained various degrees of injuries. The driver of the other vehicle was seen lying unconsciously on the bed.
As at the time of posting this report at 10pm yesterday, parents and sympathisers were still seen lucking around the hospital premises.
