An extremely sad incident was said to have occured yesterday morning as a driver of a Peugeot J5 sent the occupants in his bus to an early grave. It was said that the bus driver was in a hurry to cross the rail tracks and ignored the fast moving train which was blaring its horn. This was said to have happened at ‘Ikeja. I actually passed the scene of the accident and it was indeed a sorrowful sight.
It is truly a hightime for us to sensitize ourselves to live up like a civilized society and obey traffic light and road signs like we are meant to. Rushing, on no account, is never a better move, especially in areas where accidents of any sort can happen.
The bus driver has just wasted lives, simply because he wanted to beat the train to the chase. Nigeria has had so many cases of deaths in these past few months, ways of ending these calamities should be what we should be looking for and not fast ways.
