LAGBUS, with registration number, Lagos XU998-AAA, at about 2:15pm on Wednesday, crashed into four stationary vehicles parked under the Carter Bridge, at Ebute-Ero area of the state.

Eyewitnesses said the bus, which was carrying passengers, was heading towards Leventis, on Lagos Island.

The brakes of the bus, said to be on top speed, failed and skidded off the road, dragging a pedestrian, identified as Francis, under a parked car by the side of the road. The bus then crashed into four other cars as the driver tried to regain control of it.

An eyewitness who identified himself as Samson Momoh, said, “We were standing by our car at the Carter bridge when a LAGBUS lost control and skidded off the road. The driver tried to control the bus but it ramp into a pavement and hit a businessman, Francis, walking on the roadside. Francis was walking towards his car parked under the bridge when the bus hit him and threw him under a car parked under the Carter Bridge. There was commotion and the passengers in the bus screamed to escape but the bus ran into three other vehicles before it came into a halt”.

Telegraph was informed that the driver fled when he saw the damage he had caused.

The vehicles damaged include a Volvo 740, which was crushed beyond repair, two Sienna LE cars and a Hyundai bus.

The owner of the Volvo car, Saka Owoyale, a father of eight, said he was shocked to see the car he drove this morning crushed.

“I have been driving this car for the past four years and I always park my car under the bridge but I was shocked when I was called that a LAGBUS has destroyed my car. I ran to see the damage but it was beyond repair. I will report the incident at the Ebute-Ero police station and I will ensure that the LAGBUS management buy another car for me,” he said.

Olasunkanmi Babalola, who was also affected, said the LAGBUS ran into his DMT mobile toilets and destroyed two of them.

“I am happy that the bus did not kill my customer who was easing himself in one of my four toilets. The bus destroyed two of the toilets. Each toilet costs me about N95,000 when I bought it in 2009. I will need them to be replaced,” he said.

Telegraph was informed that Francis, was rushed to the Island General hospital and he is in critical condition.
Police officers from the Ebute Ero police station, have towed the bus away from the scene to prevent miscreants from setting it ablaze.
