The town of Guidouma in southern Gabon was the center of attraction on Thursday morning after a tragic accident involving an elephant and a big vehicle collided on the high way. The serious accident caused the death of the driver and the second passenger of the vehicle.
The elephant which suddenly came out of the forest was met by the onrushing driver who hit it with full force and caused the death of 2 people in the village of Guidouma more than 50 km from Fougamou.
The results of the collision between the truck and the pachyderm caused 2 deaths on the spot. Syndy Reine Moungandji, 22, and the driver, 32, both were Gabonese. Currently, Kourouma Mamadi of Guinea Conakry, seriously injured, is at the regional hospital in Mouila.
This is bad news to the villagers and the family of the people affected. The elephant also lost its life subsequently, meaning that the villagers decided to cut it into pieces for consumption. It is highly advisable to always wear a seat belt whenever we are driving and not to exceed the speed limits because of this type of circumstances.
