One Person Dead As Commercial Bus Collides With Moving Train In Lagos (Photos)


One person has been confirmed dead by the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) after a train collided with a passenger bus in the Oshodi area of Lagos State on Monday morning, September 14, while Some residents narrowly escaped death.

The corpse of the passenger has been placed in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) morgue, while others injured in the accident, are still receiving treatment.


The bus conveying the passengers to their destination rammed into a moving train around the PWD area of Oshodi, Lagos State. The bus with Lagos registration number GGE 972 GE veered onto the train tracks while crossing the rail at PWD inward Oshodi, Lagos, and collided with the fast-moving commuter train.

 

Confirming the incident to newsmen, the Director-General of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Dr. Femi Oke-Osantintolu, said the accident which happened around 8.am, had been brought under control.

'The agency received distress calls on the above. Upon arrival at the scene, it was discovered that a passenger bus with registration number GGE 972 GE, had veered onto the train tracks while crossing the rail at PWD inward Oshodi, Lagos.

The bus was then dragged along for a stretch of the journey before the train managed to come to a complete halt. Subsequently, the agency was able to successfully extricate the passengers and note that there was no loss of life.” he said
