A truck that was carrying 36 person most of them employees of a Common Initiative Group on their way to sell their agricultural harvests fell in a river because of a worn out bridge it had to cross in its way to the market. “Opposite my house, I found a woman crying, my son help my, there many people there at the road in pains try to help them. That is how I rushed to the scene”, a witness said. At the arrival of the Sanaga Maritime Senior Divisional Officer and his entourage, they made the different investigations to fish out the causes of the accident. “I have thanked the local population that has helped the injured and also helped to evacuate the deceased. The SDO said.

According the survivors, the accident was caused by the bad state of the road and the very degraded state of the bridge. They said the driver was trying to dodge the holes on the bridge that is what made him loose control of the vehicle and landed it in the river with all 36 occupants. To the inhabitants of the environment, it is just too much with accidents. Almost all the roads and bridges in the Sanaga Maritime division are in an advance dilapidated state. “You can see that bridge for yourselves, you can see that these are not bridges, you can see for yourselves that we are suffering because of bridges, because of roads, we have nothing. That is why it happened. If we had a bridge it never would have happened”. An inhabitant lamented. The SDO and his entourage made a tour of the different hospitals (the Edea annex regional hospital and the St Andrew hospital of Puma) were the victims of the accident were being taken care of.
