  1. What kind of vehicle? Is it a minibus, a pickup truck a car? Please be more specific.

  2. Not necessarily speed. Numerous other things can cause an accident. But this is the one to pray , hope and give support to the families if you can

  3. Most of the occupants and still unconscious. A number of broken limbs and spinal injuries. Prayers out to the occupants and their families

  4. All these accidents have a trend. Mini buses, Goods Vehicles head on collisions and private vehicles off precipices in recent times. Yet still no word or tangible action by Dept. of Transport. If a vehicel runs off the road u will hear OH Speed, with no proper investigation or analysis done by the autosities. SMH with Lucia. Are we becoming a Failed State?
