At least six staffers of a University in Cameroon were involved in a crash late Wednesday, May 13, 2020, National Telegraph can confirm.
The hexad was in a van that belongs to the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Buea, one of Cameroon’s two Anglo-Saxon universities headquartered in Buea, the capital city of the country’s South West Region.
They crashed along the Limbe-Mutengene Road, at around 6 PM GMT+1, one of the victims confirmed to National Telegraph.
Five of the staffers are from the Department of Accounting and were returning from an accounting workshop in Limbe, a tourist destination close to Buea.
The sixth victim is their driver from the Faculty of Health Sciences. The crash occurred when a Toyota Carina E that was tailgating the van hit at it.
The driver struggled in vain to control and gain a balance of the wheels but the vehicle somersaulted three times into nearby turfs, locals in Moliwe, the exact locality where the accident happened said.
No death has been recorded, sources say. The driver had one of his hands fractured and is being treated at an infirmary in Mutengene.
Another staffer sustained serious injuries and is also being treated. Others were left with bruises. In total, four are back home while the two with serious injuries are still being treated.
