Passengers escape death as trailer crushes commercial bus in Lagos

Operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority on Thursday rescued some passengers after a container-laden truck rammed into their commercial bus with number plate FKJ 366 XT in the outer Marina area of the state.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the victims sustained varying degrees of injuries in the accident which occurred at about 7 a.m.

The Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department, LASTMA, Mr. Adebayo Taofiq, said in a statement that the accident occurred as a result of over-speeding which led to a brake failure.

He said, “Immediately the accident happened, our personnel who were along the axis quickly moved to the scene to rescue the occupants of the trapped commercial bus (“driver and passengers) with the support of sympathetic road users.”
