A yet-to-be-identified driver and his passengers escaped death by a whisker on Monday as the bus conveying them to their destinations rammed into a moving train around the PWD area of Oshodi, Lagos State..
The Director-General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, said the vehicle suddenly veered onto the tracks and collided with the train.
He stated that some of the victims, who sustained injuries resulting from the impact of the collision, had been provided with on-site medical care.
He added that the wreckage of the bus had been safely removed and normalcy restored.
Oke-Osanyintolu said, “The agency received distress calls on the above. Upon arrival at the scene, it was discovered that a passenger motor GGE 972 GE had veered onto the train tracks while crossing the rail at PWD inward Oshodi and subsequently collided with a scheduled commuter train.
“The bus was then dragged along for a stretch of the journey before the train managed to come to a complete halt. The Agency was able to successfully extricate the passengers and note that there was no loss of life. Casualties have been provided with on-site medical care and discharge.
