A heavy-duty truck involved in a separate accident has blocked a major road in Lagos.
The Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr Olufemi Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, disclosed this in a statement today, adding that the crash occurred along the inward section of the Palmgrove – Obanikoro end along the poplar Ikorodu Road.
According to him the agency swiftly deployed a team of responders to the scene where it was discovered that the truck conveying two payloaders was the only vehicle involved in the accident.
The truck was reported to have lost control and rammed into a culvert along the road as a result of a brake failure.
Although no death was recorded, the LASEMA boss said the truck blocked an entire lane, including the dedicated section of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
Meanwhile, the agency says it is working with its heavy-duty equipment crane and super metro to restore free flow of traffic on the road.
