Accident: Driver Trapped As Van Summersault On Lapaz-Madina Road

About a hundred people are struggling to rescue the driver of a mini-containerized van involved in a deadly accident on the Lapaz- Madina road. The van with registration number GC 7064 20 skid off the road to save a motorcycle rider from being knocked down after a wrongful ovetaking.

It sped over the paved pedestrian walkway and crushed in a summersault leaving the driver badly wounded and stuck. It's windscreen were broken and parts of the vehicle badly dented.

Two other vehicles that followed [all private vehicle] were also affected in the process of avoiding a collision with the van and the motorcycle. As rescuers stormed the scene to rescue the driver, they realized a live electrical cable from a nearly vulganizing shop was sparking electrical fire.

They quickly run tot he shop and disconnected it from power before it could cause any harm to the driver or any of the rescuers. The motorcylist who was taken by shock parked his motor and helplessely looked on as more rescuers came in.

They had to break and remove the windscreen before they could save the driver. Others were also trying to turn vehicle which he crushed on its side to its wheels so it could be towed from the road.

Unfortunately, the cargo in the van wouldn't make it any easy for them. Until the driver is saved and keys retrieved to unlock the van, it would be very difficult to turn the van onto its wheels.

Traffic Build Up And Police Intervention

Traffic had build up at the exit lane of the road. The number of people rushing to the accident scene had also affected vehicular movement.

The Police is expected, given the difficulty in controlling traffic and getting the accident vehicle from the road, to intervene. Investigations would have to be undertaken and sanctions applied against the one who caused the accident.
