Tragedy was averted Friday afternoon on Acme Road, Ogba, Ikeja, when a Ford Sport Utility Vehicle with registration number AAA 127 AC rammed into a Honda Civic with registration GGG 45 BF.
A security guard, nearby told our reporter that the SUV was driven by an elderly woman who made her way out of the road between Redeemed Christian Church of God, Dominion Sanctuary and Zenith Bank on Acme road when her car brake failed and she rammed into an oncoming Honda Civic car. “This mama came out with reverse gear when her break failed and rammed into the car behind her.
“She was alone in her car when the accident happened but thank God nothing happened to her. She only suffered shock and was quickly attended to by emergency workers from Alausa”.
Our reporter gathered that the Honda car had two male occupants when the crash happened and the young man in the front passenger seat suffered minor bruises and the driver came unijured.
As at the time of filing in this report, men of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA), men of the Nigerian Police and men of the Lagos State Emergency Agency (LASEMA) were already on ground to clear traffic that was already building on the ever busy Acme road. The crashed vehicles were being towed away before our reporter left.
