NAN reports that the accident occurred at about 11 a.m. behind Kam Salem House, the Police Headquarters annex at the Obalende.

The driver of the vehicle, military personnel, was said to be speeding when his tyre burst and the vehicle somersaulted severally.

The victim, according to eyewitnesses was flung into the air and thrown over the bridge to the ground.

The unconscious military personnel was taken to the nearby Military Hospital in Ikoyi in a tricycle, popularly known as ‘Keke Marwa’ by his colleagues.

The victim, who was identified as Bisi by her colleagues was said to be a dutiful worker who loved her job with passion in spite of the little salary she earned.
