Four people were pronounced dead over the weekend as a result of a tragic motor accident, which occurred along the Kakata/Weala highway in Margibi County.
The two vehicles, according to eyewitnesses, were speeding excessively when they ran into each other head-on, thus killing four of the occupants.
The incident occurred on Friday, July 6, around the Konola Vai Town community area when a Nissan Pathfinder (Silver color) bearing license plate #A-51288 en route from Gbarnga to Monrovia collided head-on with a Nissan Sunny (Green) Station Wagon, plying in the opposite direction from Kakata to Bong County.
According to medical accounts from the C.H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata, J. Obley Copper, Martha B. Carter and Mercy Sumo were recorded “dead on arrival” (DOA), while another female victim, whose identity is yet to be established, died few hours after she was admitted.
At least four other people were injured. They include Julius Dunor, 20, Oldman Fwegar, 39, Henry Kollie, 18 and Timothy Saar, 30. They are currently undergoing medical treatment at health centers in Margibi and Montserrado counties. The driver of the Nissan Pathfinder, Klemani Gbelema, was the only person that did not sustain a wound in Friday’s incident.
He expressed gratitude to God, describing the situation as so “terrible that it was only through God’s grace that others were able to survive.”
Officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) from a traffic division in Margibi County are investigating circumstances that resulted to the accident.
