40-Feet Container Falls And Crushes Two Cars In Apapa 


Two cars, a Toyota Sports and Toyota Camry, were completely crushed by a 40-feet container at the Apapa area of Lagos State yesterday.

According to eyewitness reports, the container fell on the cars when the driver of the articulated vehicle conveying it attempted to avoid bad patches on the road.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Tunji Disu, has however assured everyone that no one was harmed in the accident, as both cars were empty.

He further noted that officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) arrived at the scene to recover the fallen container.

This is one of many accidents reported to have occurred in Lagos over the past few months. Should these accidents be blamed on bad roads, poorly maintained articulated vehicles that transport heavy containers or the nonchalance of drivers?
