Two people were killed on Thursday when a train struck a passenger bus in Nigeria's commercial capital Lagos, the emergency services said.
The accident, which happened in the PWD area of the city of more than 20 million, also seriously injured several people, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency said.
"Unfortunately, two adults were confirmed dead," it said, adding that the injured had been admitted to hospital.
The agency blamed the bus driver's "reckless driving" for the crash, accusing the driver of "trying to beat the train traffic signal before the moving train rammed" into the vehicle.
Ibrahim Farinloye of the National Emergency Management Agency confirmed the collision and said that "two people lost their lives in the unfortunate accident".
He said rescue workers had deployed to evacuate the damaged bus, while those injured were being treated.
Accidents are common on Nigeria's poorly maintained roads as a result of speeding, reckless driving and disregarding traffic rules.
Most motorists spend several hours daily locked in traffic in the metropolis and the Nigeria Railway operates daily passenger train services in the city.
