According to information, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency said, the four persons trapped in the car were rescued.

Recall that a 40-foot container also fell on three stationary vehicles and a tricycle in Lagos State, at an incident, which occurred at Barracks Bus Stop inward Trade Fair, which said to have left many road users stranded for hours as a result of the traffic gridlock in March, this year 2021.

Just in July, 2021. One person was confirmed dead, after an accident that occurred on the Otedola bridge in Lagos, where the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), also confirmed the fatality, adding that one other person sustained injury.

Mind you, this isn't the first time container will be falling at Ojuelegba Bridge, as a container-laden truck ran into the side railings on the bridge in 2019 but thankfully, no life was lost. However, it was a hell of traffic for hundreds of commuters trapped for several hours, as they eased their way through the limited available route.
