At least six people including a child have died with three others injured in a car accident along Juba – Nimule Road on Tuesday.
According to Police Spokesperson Maj.Gen Daniel Justin, the accident occurred in the afternoon near Ashwa Area when a van carrying eight passengers collided with a truck.
“The accident actually happened and as a result six people died and three injured and they are in critical condition,” Justin added.
Justine said the wounded were taken to Juba Teaching Hospital for treatment and the case are under investigations adding that one of the people who died is a foreigner.
He said police are doing their best to prevent accidents that happen along high ways including Nimule and other roads.
“We have our traffic police along the high ways in Nessitu and after Nessitu, they are to monitor the over speeding of the vehicles,” Justin added.
Justine said the accidents happen due to over speeding along the high ways when drivers travel accelerate without anyone monitoring.
According to Justine, carnage along Nimule Juba Roads has remarkably reduced and accidents happen only when notorious drivers ignore instructions.
