TWO persons yesterday lost their lives and four others sustained major injuries in an early morning accident that involved two trucks, a 911 and a mini-truck, in Mazamaza area of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Lagos.
According to an eyewitness, the break of the 911 truck, loaded with cement and heading towards Mazamaza from Mile Two, failed while descending from the Mile Two-Mazamaza bridge.
The witness disclosed that in a bid to halt the movement of the truck, the driver drove into the culverts used by a construction firm to demarcate its construction site at Mazamaza Bus stop, crushing some Muslim clerics, who were trying to fix one of the tyres of their mini-truck. Two died on the spot while three others sustained injuries. The truck also rammed into a motorcycle, chopping off one of the legs of the rider.
