JUST IN: Two die in Lagos car crash

Two people lost their lives on Monday in an auto crash that occurred at Gbagada Bus Stop, around Anthony area of Lagos state.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered that tragedy struck when a Volkswagen commercial bus with registration number GGE716XM had a head on collision with another vehicle, identified as a taxi

Sources said the incident occurred at about 3 p.m.

When contacted, the Lagos State Emergency Management Authority, LASEMA, said 14 persons were rescued and had been taken to the Gbagada General Hospital and Trauma Centre by LASAMBUS and the LASEMA Paramedics.

The rescued passengers sustained different degrees of injuries, the agency said.

LASEMA, however, said that two lives were lost to the unfortunate incident, adding that bodies of the victims have been moved to the Lagos Mainland Hospital Mortuary.

Adesina Tiamiyu, the agency’s General Manager, said the damaged vehicles were recovered with the aid of the agency’s towing truck to facilitate free flow of traffic in the area.

Mr. Tiamiyu, however, advised motorists especially commercial bus drivers to drive within the speed limit to avoid loss of lives.
