The trailer going inward Ikorodu skidded off the main carriageway to collide with the high capacity bus on the BRT corridor. Several passengers in the BRT bus suffered different degrees of injuries. An unconfirmed report suggests that some lives might have been lost. Casualties were later taken to the hospital. The accident caused slow movement in and out of Ikorodu due to the presence of a huge number of onlookers.
Rescue, evacuation and recovery operations were supervised by the indefatigable officers of the LASTMA.
The accident caused a traffic backlog that extended to Oja bus-stop for those coming from Ikorodu. The backlog also extended to Asolo for those going into Ikorodu.
