A commercial bus with six passengers on board this morning collided with a moving commuter train at Oshodi.

The Director-General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu verified the incident saying the vehicle suddenly veered onto the tracks and collided with the train.

Oke-Osanyintolu said,  “The agency received distress calls at 8.12 am on the above. Upon arrival at the scene, it was discovered that a passenger motor GGE 972 GE with six passengers 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.”

Unfortunately, the accident claimed a life, as the agency was able to rescue the other passengers while the remains of the wrecked bus was removed to allow for the free flow of commuter traffic.

The rescued passengers were provided with on-site care and discharged.
