An eyewitness told P.M.NEWS that the unidentified driver attempted to overtake another bus on the bridge while trying to go and load passengers back to Ajah when he lost control and ran over the woman.
The driver of the vehicle fled the scene immediately the accident occurred.
Another witness at the scene of the accident told P.M.NEWS that the owner of the vehicle, a military officer on learing of the accident promptly arrived the scene and invited the Lagos State ambulance bus officials to come and convey the critically injured woman to the Military Hospital,Â Yaba for treatment.
