The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) has rescued one person from a road crash at Odo Iyalaro inward Maryland Bus Stop.
The incident happened after a vehicle rammed into a stationary container truck.
Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Dr. Oluwafemi Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, while commenting on the incident on Tuesday, advised road users to apply more caution while traversing the ever-busy roads of inner-city Lagos, especially at night.
He also stated that people with poor vision should desist from driving at night.
The LASEMA Permanent Secretary also revealed that a lot of avoidable accidents occur due to the carelessness of road users who refuse to put necessary ‘C’ caution materials around broken down vehicles on the one hand, and over-speeding, distracted drivers, with poor night vision on the other hand.
