There was an accident at Mile 12 axis of Ikorodu Road in Lagos, southwest Nigeria, in the early hours of today, involving three trucks, one of which had broken down on the busy road and there was no road sign indicating that a vehicle is ahead.
This resulted in serious traffic jam during the rush hour.  According to an eyewitness account, the accident occurred at about 4a.m. and involved a truck conveying bags of salt belonging to Bizler Logistics, and another truck carrying a container with Cross River State registration number AA 980 DUK, and a white trailer which was also damaged.

The accident happened when the Bizler Logistics trailer broke down close to Mile 12 overhead bridge inward Ikorodu, before the truck carrying fish feeds rammed into the stationary trailer, causing severe injuries to the driver and his assistant.

The two, according to the eyewitness, were taken to an undisclosed hospital in Ikorodu. “There was a bonfire to alert oncoming motorists about the broken down truck but as at the time the truck carrying a container got there, the fire had extinguished, leading to poor visibility,” the witness said.

He also added that there was a third truck which crashed into the other two and was towed away early in the morning by officials of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority(LASTMA).
A LASTMA official who spoke under anonymity confirmed that the accident involved three trucks. “Two have been moved, leaving the one carrying a container because it was the most damaged of the trailers,” he said.
