Between 8.30pm & 9pm on Tuesday, a truck veered off its track, causing it’s content to fall off the flyover at Ojuelegba, Lagos and landing on pedestrians and vehicles.
According to ThisDay, “the driver was trying to navigate the bend on the bridge when its gravity first pulled the body of the truck down and its head followed.”
The report added that some tankers have been permanently parked on one side of the bridge, leaving only one lane for other motorists.
The Lagos state police Rapid Response Squad and officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency were on ground to deal the situation after the incident.
Details on the number of casualties are yet to be disclosed.
