THREE DIE, 69 INJURED AS TRUCK CRUSHES BRT BUS

The operators of Bus Rapid Transit in Lagos State, Primero Transport Services Limited, has absolved its driver, who died in a fatal accident in Lagos on Tuesday of any blame.

Mr Fola Tinubu, the Managing Director of the firm, said on Wednesday that there was nothing the driver of the bus could have done to avert the accident where three died and many were injured.

NAN reports that three people were killed when a Dangote truck rammed into a BRT bus at Majidun area of Ikorodu, Lagos.

The cement-laden truck allegedly had a brake failure and skidded into the BRT lane, crushing an oncoming BRT bus with registration number LSR228XS.

Tinubu, who spoke with NAN on phone said, “The Dangote truck jumped up the culvert into the BRT lane and hit our bus headlong (sic).

“There was nothing the bus driver could have done.

“Unfortunately, we lost the bus driver, one other staff of ours and a lady passenger.

“We are believing that all the injured will fully recover. The medical people are doing their best, for now, we have to keep praying for them,” he said.

Tinubu urged Lagos residents not to relent in prayers for the injured, assuring that the medical personnel were also not relenting to save their lives.
