Three people were crushed to death while many others were injured, when a Red bus ran into a Yellow bus in an early morning accident, on Wednesday, in Ketu, Lagos State. (Read More Here)).

The incident occured at about 6.53am, inward Mile 12.

Road users who were heading for Mile 12/ Ikorodu have been held up in traffic gridlock as a result of the accident.

An eye witness Mrs Bolarinwa Adelakun said the incident occured when the Red bus suffered brake failure and crashed into the Yellow and in the process, crushed three people to death and injured many others. 

She said the victims were among many who ignored pedestrian order by standing by the road side to board vehicles or dash across the expressway despite closeness to designated bus- stop and pedestrian bridges unfortunately the incident caught them unawares.

Confirming the incident, the Spokesperson, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, Adebayo Taofeek said the incident was unfortunate and urged people to make use of designated bus-stops and pedestrian bridges to avoid future occurrences. 

“The incident is unfortunate. Designated bus-,stops and pedestrian bridges are constructed for our use.

He explained that preliminary investigations showed that the brake failure resulted in the bus ramming into a commercial bus. The commercial vehicle because of the collision, rammed into passers-by and some persons at a bus stop.

The remains of the deceased have been evacuated while the injured are in hospital, he said.
