Tragedy was averted yesterday when protective railings prevented a truck loaded with plywood from falling off the Ojuelegba Bridge and hitting other cars.

The incident, which led to a heavy gridlock, occurred a few weeks after a trailer fell from the same bridge and landed on cars, killing a driver.

 
The truck fell while plying the bridge, but the railings of the bridge held the container from falling on vehicles below the bridge.
   
The truck bearing the container tilted after climbing the bridge and the container fell.
 
It took a few hours before officers of the Lagos State Traffic State Management Authority (LASTMA) came to remove the truck from the busy road.
