Pregnant woman & a lady burnt to death in Lagos accident

A very sad accident has left a pregnant woman and another lady burnt to death in a ghastly motor accident in Maryland area of Lagos.

The accident occurred around 2:55pm on Friday when a commercial bus, known as ‘danfo’ on top speed lost control after hitting a jeep at Cane Villiage, Maryland, fell on its side and caught fire.

It was learnt that the danfo bus was coming from Yaba when the accident occurred. The accident caused serious gridlock in the axis as motorists groaned after waiting for hours in the gridlock.

General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Adesina Tiamiyu said the agency received a distress call regarding a commercial bus that accidentally caught fire.

“Five persons were rescued and attended to by a joint team of LASAMBUS and the LASEMA Paramedics. Thereafter, the victims were taken to the Trauma and Burns Centre, Gbagada for further treatment, while two other adult female passengers were burnt beyond recognition and were recovered by LASEMA’s ERT and handed over to the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit, SEHMU for deposition at Mainland Hospital Morgue,” he said.

Tiamiyu said the vehicle was recovered by the ERT and taken to LASTMA Yard, Oshodi, saying proper investigation would be conducted on the incident.

He advised motorist to drive with utmost care and safety as most accidents were avoidable.
