Four Injured As Trains Collide in Lagos
Many passengers escaped death when two trains collided in Lagos on Wednesday.
Four people were however injured.
It was learnt that the accident was due to the absence of signal operator at the Mushin Station terminus in Lagos.
An eyewitness, who identified herself simply as Bisi, said when one of the trains, which was coming from Ijoko in Ogun State got to the terminus, it stopped for passengers to disembark.
Bisi added that as the Iddo-bound train driver was waiting to be cleared, the train coming from Iddo rammed into it.
It was gathered that the signal operator had gone to defecate and asked his assistant to take over but his assistant forgot, leading to the collision.
