Tragedy as container falls on a car in Mile 2 area of Lagos state, killing the driver of the car.
It was a narrow escape for the owner of a car who survived an accident after a container fell on his car and crushed the driver to death, leaving the car condemned on Mile 2 road.
The boss who was seating at the back seat of the car survived the accident which occurred due to lack of safety harnesses to hold the container properly.
According to reports, the driver Mr. Taofeek who was killed by the container accident has been buried following the incident yesterday.
Mile 2 road has been in the news recently due to the neglect of the road by both the state and the federal government. Tanker drivers have turned this once peaceful abode into their parking space which endangers the lives of people around this axis, especially what is seen in this place. Most times these containers do not have enough safety measures, some are not properly seated to the base of the vehicle.

Residents are saddened by the incident and begs the government to do something to prevent it from happening again. This is an accident that could have been avoided if proper safety measures had been taken.
