Truck crushes begger to death along Lagos-Badagry expressway

A woman has been killed after a truck crushed her at First Gate bus stop along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway on Thursday.

The truck veered off the road and climbed the curb, where the woman, a beggar was sitting.

According to a trader, whose business is close to the scene of the accident, Martins Zenab,  some transport workers, who wanted to collect money from the truck driver made him veer off the road.

Zenab said, “The incident happened about 10 minutes to 12. The ‘agberos’ collecting trailer money were harassing the driver for money when he swerved and went to crush the woman, a  beggar who used to sit on the curb.”

He added that the truck has been evacuated into the compound of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency while the body of the woman has been moved too.
