The incident happened at Taneneh village, Foni, in the West Coast Region on Saturday morning.
According to eye witnesses, the incident occurred in the midst of a heavy downpour accompanied by windstorms, resulting in the ‘gelegeleh’ driver losing control and eventually hit a truck which was parked along the highway.
The victims of the incident include two women and three men.
A young lady has already been identified as Adama Joof by her brother who lives at Sinchu Sorrie village.
Adama was a teacher at Brikamaba Lower Basic School. She died at 27 and was unmarried. She left behind her mom and dad and three elder brothers.
Another eye witness called Mama, said the truck was parked on the highway without displaying any reflector. She thus blamed the truck driver for failure to put a reflector.
Another eye witness said the accident was not the first of its kind, saying that this has been happening for quite a long time and it mostly occurs during the rainy season. He warned that that particular area of Taneneh village is a dangerous zone for drivers.
