A trailer carrying container has crushed one person to death while another woman sustained injuries in a multiple car crash close to Otedola Bridge outward Lagos on Sunday.
The trailer, according to the National Emergency Management Authority, lost control while descending the bridge.
In the process of trying to park at a side of the road, the container fell off the body of the vehicle and landed on top of another vehicle driven by a woman, who was seriously injured.
The woman was rescued and taken to Lagos State Accident and Emergency Centre located at Old Toll Gate by 7UP.
However, the agency said a young man hawking snacks along the axis was crushed to death.
Earlier on Sunday morning, a lone accident was recorded at Lotto Corridor in Ogun State with a truck fully loaded with bamboos blocking the Lagos–Ibadan end of the road.
It took almost four hours before the trans-loading and clearance of the obstruction was completed.
