Hundreds of commuters were stranded and, at least, four people injured on Tuesday as a commercial bus, manoeuvring near a fallen fuel tanker, burnt beyond recognition, blocking the ever-busy Oke Afa-Isolo Bridge in Lagos State.
The bus carrying 14 passengers burnt at 6.30a.m. when it was ascending the bridge connecting Oke Afa with Isolo, Okota and some others in Oshodi-Isolo LGA.
A witness at the scene told our correspondent that four occupants of the bus were rushed to the Isolo General Hospital for treatment.
The witness, who identified himself simply as a financial expert, was driving a 2005 Toyota and closely following the burnt bus.
The witness, whose car was slightly affected by smoke at the rear, told our reporters that the bus driver was among those rushed to the hospital.
