Multiple Crash Reported On Otedola Bridge


 There are reports of a multiple-car crash on the Otedola Bridge section of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Wednesday morning involving a containerised truck and several cars.

The incident involved a high-capacity bus on the bridge inwards Berger while motorists on the other side of the road slowed down to observe what has happened, thereby, causing heavy traffic on the road, a situation that has also left travellers on the section of the highway stranded.
