1 Dies In Third Mainland Bridge Auto Crash

Third Mainland Bridge

The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has stated that a fatal accident occurred early Saturday morning around 6:30am on the Third Mainland Bridge by UNILAG waterfront inward Iyana Oworonsoki in Lagos.

The Authority said one person lost his life in the accident, which it apparently blamed on over-speeding.

LASTMA, in a post on its verified X handle (formerly Twitter), noted that the tragedy involved a Mini Truck with the registration number MUS 489 XS and a Toyota Camry car with registration number KRD 470 JD.

The agency wrote, “Personnel of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) on the ground managing the situation and controlling traffic under the rain.


Emergency responders at the accident scene included men of the Nigerian Police Force, SEHMU personnel, and a LASTMA towing truck trying to evacuate both vehicles to enable a free flow of traffic on the bridge.
