Accident claims policeman, driver’s lives in Lagos

10 September 2012, 09:22

Lagos - Two persons, including a policeman, died on Sunday in an accident involving a Volkswagen LT commercial bus, at Ikeja bus stop, Lagos.

The policeman and the driver (names unknown) died instantly as the bus with registration number AX336-EKY skipped off the road at about 2:30 p.m. and crashed into the rail lines near the bus stop.

An eye witness, Mrs Kudirat Ayoola said that the bus contained three people--the driver, the conductor and the policeman.

Ayoola said that the bus that was on a high speed from Oshodi, suddenly skipped off the road before it was stopped by the rail tracks.

Some policemen were seen at the scene pulling the bus off the rail track, in case a train should come by.

The remains of the deceased were conveyed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, in a police patrol van.

The bus conductor, who was injured, was seen being taken to an undisclosed hospital by some good Nigerians.
