Train, BRT Accident: Bus Driver Speaks, Begs For Forgiveness

The driver of the BRT bus which collided with a moving train on Thursday has pleaded for forgiveness following reports of his refusal to listen to pleas to stop before the crossing.

The number of casualties from the accident reached seven on Friday and one of the survivors narrated how the driver continued moving when he got to the intersection at PWD, Ikeja.

According to the latest reports, the erring driver who works with the Lagos State Ministry of Transport has been transferred to the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department.

Sharing his side of what transpired on that fateful day, 44-year-old Oluwaseun Osinbajo said it was no fault of his as the bus had a mechanical fault.

“It was not my fault. How could I have ignored warning signs? The bus had a mechanical fault.

“It is a pity this has happened. I beg everyone affected to please forgive me in the name of God”, he said.

While addressing journalists after the accident, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu disclosed that of the 85 people involved in the accident, 42 sustained moderate injuries.

He added that while 29 had serious injuries, eight were left with mild injuries.
