Lagos authority

In a recent accident on Wharf Road, opposite Area B Police Command outward Apapa, Lagos, operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) swiftly responded to a tragic accident involving a fully loaded 40ft container and a stationary tipper truck with no registration number.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the 40ft loaded container lost control at high speed, resulting in a collision with the stationary tipper truck that had a tire problem. Tragically, the driver of the loaded 40ft container lost his life instantly, while a motor boy was trapped.

LASTMA officials, alongside other emergency responders such as the Federal Road Safety Corps, Nigerian Police, and Nigerian Port Authority, worked together to rescue the trapped motor boy. The deceased driver’s body was taken to the Area B Police Command, while the rescued motor boy received immediate medical attention at the nearby General Hospital in Apapa.

We commend the swift response of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), the Federal Road Safety Corps, Nigerian Police, and Nigerian Port Authority in rescuing the trapped motor boy and taking prompt action in the recent accident involving a fully loaded 40ft container and a stationed tipper truck.

Such rapid response and collaboration among emergency responders are essential in preventing further loss of life and ensuring the safety of individuals involved in accidents. Slow actions in similar situations have unfortunately led to tragic outcomes in Nigeria, emphasizing the importance of efficient and coordinated emergency services.

It is crucial that these agencies continue to prioritize quick and effective responses to accidents on our roads to save lives and enhance safety across the country.
