This afternoon a sprinter vehicle was involved in a serious accident along the Banjul highway. Many passengers sustained injuries but there was no death recorded.
According Mr Ebrima Khan, an eye witness, he was coming from Jeshwan heading to Banjul when he saw the vehicle’s tyres burst. He added that the driver was going at a very high speed and, as he tried to apply the brakes, the vehicle turned over.
‘I then quickly stopped the traffic to ask people for help and the injured passengers were taken to the hospital for first aid treatment,’ Mr Khan said.
‘Although there was no death, one lady and some students sustained serious injuries,’ he added.
Khan finally thanked the Police Intervention Unit Officers for support in taking the victims to the hospital.
