It was never a smooth ride for commuters this morning, mostly, those ending to the island as there was panic on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos this morning. A commercial bus caught fire while on motion, but fortunately no life was lost in the incident.
It was gathered that the driver of the bus tried all he could to bring the bus to a stop at a safe side of the road. Unknown to him there was a broken down vehicle which was parked at exactly where he thought would be safe for his passengers to alight, the car also caught fire.
Emergency responders with the aid of RRS men quickly sprung into action to avert further calamity.
