0

No fewer than seven persons were confirmed dead in two crashes at the Kara end of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and in the Fagba area of Lagos on Thursday.

 

While the Kara incident was a multiple accident involving a truck and some vehicles, a train rammed into a trailer on the railway line along Fagba.

 

Four persons hanging on the train reportedly died while others sustained injuries.

 

Three casualties were also recorded in the road crash, which caused a traffic jam on the expressway. The gridlock extended to the Ogba area of the state.

 

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency and the state police command confirmed the deaths.
