Two Injured As Truck Crashes Into Pedestrian Bridge In Alapere, Lagos

A section of a pedestrian bridge in the Alapere Estate, Ketu area of Lagos, collapsed on Thursday night following a collision with a truck.

The incident occurred in the wee hours of Thursday when the truck collided with the bridge.

New Telegraph gathered that two persons were reportedly injured during the accident.


Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) said the truck, loaded with metal and exceeding the height restriction, got stuck under the bridge, leading to its collapse.

Debris from the accident caused traffic gridlock along the Ketu-Alapere axis towards Berger.

A video posted by the Lagos state Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Jubril Gawat, showed emergency responders swiftly clearing the debris to restore traffic flow.
