Passengers escape death as bus rams into moving train in Lagos

 

Eight passengers narrowly escaped death in the early hours of Monday when a bus with Lagos registration number GGE 972 GE suddenly veered onto the train tracks while crossing the rail at PWD inward Oshodi, Lagos and collided with a fast-moving commuter train in the process.

Director-General of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Femi Oke-Osantintolu, who confirmed the incident, said, “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.”
