Kara Bridge Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Fire OnoBello

More than twenty vehicles were engulfed in fire early Saturday as a petrol-laden taker crashed on the Kara Bridge section of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

According to eyewitnesses, the driver of the tanker and his companion were unable to escape the fire that was triggered by an explosion. They also confirmed that the Nigerian police and Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) officials have arrived at the scene to put the situation under control.

The incident led to heavy traffic on that section of the expressway as travelers were advised to please be patient or seek alternative routes.

Tanker related accidents are common along Kara Bridge. On July 17, two trucks and a fully-loaded fuel tanker were in collision, resulting in major gridlock for commuters.

At least one person was confirmed dead on June 21, after a petrol tanker, a gas truck, and a cement transport truck collided on the bridge.
