A ghastly accident on the Bafoussam – Mbouda highway has resulted in the death of at least four people while several others sustained injures.
The deathly crash involved a seventy seats capacity bus and a 13 seats small bus. Some passengers witnessed the accident and blamed it on high speed and the recklessness of the driver of a small vehicle that slightly escaped the crash.
Following the accident the Governor of the West Region Awa Fonka Augustine visited the scene of the accident to have a firsthand appraisal of the situation. The populations of the locality where the accident occurred flooded the roads to help the victims to safety.
The accident occurs at the time the National Gendarmerie is on a road safety and accident prevention campaign aimed at preventing accidents at the start of the new school year.
