Two persons were reportedly injured after Toyota Hiace bus with registration number EKY 888 XW and a train had a collision at the Ilupeju Bye-pass, Lagos.
The timely response of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency averted a disaster that could have led to loss of lives as it swiftly responded to the train accident.
According to report, all vehicles were stopped at the railway crossing but the driver refused to obey the traffic officers at the scene thereby ramming into the moving train.
Fortunately, there was no record of loss of lives but two adult males sustained injury and were administered First aid treatment by the Agency’s Paramedics before being taken to the General hospital for further medical attention.
The bus was recovered off the railway with the aid of the Agency’s light tow-truck and was taken to Railway Police Station, Mushin, thereby restoring the rail track to normalcy.
Other responders at the scene were the Nigeria Police Force, LASTMA Officers, Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps.
