Late last month, a Toyota Rush received a massive dent on the front end following a crash with a Mini commercial bus, popularly known as as Korope, at Adeniji inwards Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.
While disclosing this in a post on its official X handle, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) posted a video from the scene of the crash, which shows that the Rush crashed into the Mini Bus.
The caption on the video read : “An accident involving a mini commercial bus and Sedan has occurred at Adeniji inw the Bridge, taking up a lane, alongside onlookers.”
Reacting to the video reshared by Gold Myne TV, some users blame the Korope driver, owning to the fact that majority of them are reckless. But a user noted the driver of the Toyota is at fault due to the fact that the Rush hit the bus from behind.
zionstarphotography said : “Rule of driving: you hit someone from behind, you are at fault…. Jeep should pay the Bus.
Replying to zionstarphotography’s comment, a user turner_paige122, asked : “What if the bus caused the accident??. If you’re a good driver you won’t just judge like this.”
A user, thundhe_, who also replied to turner_paige122’s comment said :
“So how should it be judged. If you are a good driver, you’d make sure there is space between you and the car in front on you to avoid situations like this.”
Another user, humbletea147, also said :
“It doesn’t matter if you hit someone at the car you are guilty. That’s why in driving school dey tell you give 200meter from infront of you.”

“No cameras in Nigeria for such situations only if the SUV has a body camera that is working properly with a date base to save up the videos maybe such videos can help in situations like that if the bus driver is truly at fault.”
