Hospital sources have confirmed that at least four (4) people, including a police officer and a pastor, have lost their lives in a gruesome road accident that took place in the early hours of Monday 25th January 2010.

The accident which took place along the Freetown/Waterloo Highway, at a place called Mamboreh, left six (6) severely injured, plus several others with minor injuries hospitalized at the Rokupa Satellite Hospital, Connaught Hospital, and Emergency Hospital.


It occurred when a commercial mini-bus (poda poda), with registration numbers: ADC 828 that departed Grafton for Freetown ran into a stationary wood truck and somersaulted.
A total of over twenty (20) passengers were onboard the commercial mini-bus during the time of the accident.


Eyewitnesses have attributed the cause of the accident to over speeding and fatigue on the side of the driver.
One of the badly injured survivors, Mohamed Swarray, told the Awareness Times that he had to tap the drivers shoulder on a particular instance when he noticed that the seemingly tired driver was nodding whilst driving.


Police are investigating the accident whilst the corpses of the deceased persons have been convened to the Mortuary of the Connaught Hospital.
