A driver and many of his passengers were burnt beyond recognition in a fatal accident along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway this afternoon. Eyewitnesses say the bus driver was picking passengers on the expressway and upon sighting members of the National Union Of Road Transport Workers Task Force, he sped off and ran into a ditch. The bus somersaulted and burst into flames. The bus driver and most of the passengers died in the ensuing fire. Two passengers escaped with major burns. They have been taken to the hospital for medical care.
