A yet to be identified truck collided with a pedestrian bridge in Alapere Estate, Ketu, Lagos, early Friday morning, causing the bridge to collapse. According to report, the incident occurred around midnight and was first reported by a resident of the estate, Umar-Farouq Ogbe, who shared a video of the collapsed bridge on social media. The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) confirmed the incident, stating that the truck, loaded with metal and exceeding the height restriction, got stuck under the bridge, leading to its collapse. The debris from the collapsed bridge caused significant traffic gridlock along the Ketu-Alapere axis towards Berger. Two persons were reportedly injured during the accident. Authorities are currently responding to the incident.
