The incident was confirmed by Rotimi Adeleye, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC.

He said, “the gas-laden truck, which lost control, fell on a 14-seater bus parked at a restaurant on Ore-Lagos Expressway.

“It hit the side of the bridge before falling on the passenger bus. No life was lost. All the passengers have already alighted from the bus to eat in the eatery, when the incident occurred.

“No explosion and gas leakages occurred during the crash. Imagine what would have happened if the truck driver did not install stock valve in his vehicle.”
