A sad incident occurred earlier this evening when a container fell off the truck conveying it from the Ojuelegba bridge in Lagos, crushing to death two occupants of an unidentifiable SUV believed to be a couple.

According to an eye witness who spoke to Daily Times, a second white colored car, was also partially crushed but fortunately the occupants had scampered to safety on time.

The eye witness narrated that they were raising alarm to alert the driver of the jeep and the other occupant suspected to be his wife, without avail as the occupants who wound up the car windows obviously could not make out their cries.

Other eye witnesses disclosed that the truck had earlier this morning fallen at Ijora road, but was uploaded again only to cause havoc at Ojuelegba Bridge.
It was also discovered that the container got loose as a result of not been fastened to the truck with hooks, chains or clips.
