Several Cars In Flames On Otedola Bridge After A Trailer Rammed Into Container Carrying Goods


The Otedola Bridge in Lagos State has been known for keeping scores of accidents and fire incident in recent years. I believe you still recall the fire accident that happened on the 28th of June, 2018, where a tanker lorry fully loaded with fuel fell, leaked and exploded, burning scores of cars. Today, an almost similar event occurred after a trailer containing fuel rammed into a container.


People have come to a conclusion that the Otedola Bridge has some spiritual linking due to accidents and fire outbreaks that occur consistently. Earlier this morning about seven cars were burnt beyond recognition after a tanker filled with Premium Motor Spirit, popularly known as petrol collided with a truck carrying a container on Otedola Bridge.


The fire has been out away but these event has caused a massive traffic as reported by Lagos Fire Service on their Twitter handle. Right now it is reported that there is a massive traffic at Motorway-7up to Alapere and motorist are advised to use CMD Rd, 7up area to link Olowopo and Gbagada.
