Mutiin, in shock spoke with NAN at the scene, saying the accident occurred at 7.30 as he was on the Lagos Island-bound side of the highway.
“As I was approaching Obanikoro Bus Stop, there was a slight traffic. Suddenly, I felt an impact on my car and I saw the articulated truck behind me crushing my car.In the process, my car hit the two vehicles in front and I was pushed toward the culvert. I thank God that I am alive, even though my car was badly damaged,” he said.
The two other vehicles involved in the accident were a KIA saloon car and a smaller truck.
