18 Seater Bus Tumbled on 3rd Mainland Bridge

One person was said to have burnt to death while 18 passengers escaped death by whiskers, Wednesday morning , when an 18 passengers Mazda bus fully loaded went up in flames on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
The incident was said to have occurred at about 7.15am at the UNILAG axis of the bridge when the 18-seater bus was journeying inward the Lagos Island from Ikorodu.
Vanguard gathered that the bus with number plate MUS 781XB tumbled twice and eventually went up in flames due to over speeding on the part of the driver.
It was gathered that all the occupants of the bus were trapped but were lucky to have escaped death before the vehicle went up in flames as they were later rescued by sympathisers and law enforcement agents.
