This one we are tempted to call a “Safe accident” news for us here at Naijauto.com especially at this period of too many recurring horrible reports and tragic news that we have been getting lately. When you read further, you will understand why we call it “Safe accident”.
Reports we got recently has it that a certain articulated truck which initially has laden containers at its back fell off from one layer to another on the well known Ijora Bridge in Lagos. Normally, when one gets this kind of news, what would naturally come to mind would be something like "Oh my God! how many lives were lost", right?

The reason we had tagged this new as “Safe” is because we are relieved that there was never a record of human injuries or death from this accident even though the laden containers were dislodged totally from the truck when it fell to the other layer.
Isn’t that just a lucky day for commuters on Ijora Bridge at such moment?
It has been a long time since we got news of such type of accident that didn't lead to human death or injury and we are truly glad that this one didn't either.
