Accident scene

Operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) today rescued three severely injured accident victims, two males and a female at Mosalasi Round-About inward Iyana-Ipaja area of Lagos.

LASTMA Akanji Wasiu, Bravo 16 who led the rescue operations confirmed that the accident involved three vehicles, Mazda commercial bus (FKJ 88 XH), Tricycle (Keke Marwa KJA 369 QM) and a white Camry car (KJA 351 HG) on main carriageway at Iyana-Ipaja area of Lagos.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of a white Camry car lost control due to overspeeding and hit a commercial tricycle from the rear while the tricycle went off-balanced and obstructed another upcoming fully loaded Mazda commercial bus going to Iyana-Ipaja.

Those rescued 3 accident victims were immediately rushed to different Hospitals by their relatives but, unfortunately, one of the rescued accident victims (male) reportedly died along the road to the hospital.

Those vehicles involved in the accident were immediately removed from the road to avoid impeding the free flow of traffic and handed over to Policemen from Gowon Estate Divisional Police Headquarters for further investigations.

One of the passengers inside the commercial tricycle involved in the accident was caught with more than 100 pieces of used small children ‘Diapers Pampers’ with a huge sum of money of different denominations was immediately handed over to Policemen at the scene of the accident.

The General Manager of LASTMA Mr Bolaji Oreagba stated that it was a ‘man-made’ accident that could have been prevented if over-speeding was avoided.

He maintained that the government embarked on regular public education on the danger inherent in over-speeding by both private, commercial and truck drivers across the State.


My Oreagba however warned every motoring public to always ensure that their vehicles are in good condition, particularly the break before driving them on Lagos roads.
