Dangote truck killed 8 people




Eight people have died in a fatal motor
accident involving multiple motor vehicles.
The accident happened on Wednesday,
August 3rd, near Fibawe area along Ndola-
Kapiri road in Zambia.
The injured victims were immediately rushed
to Kapiri district hospital,,
It was gathered that the vehicles -an Altezza,
a minibus, and a Dangote truck reg 1482
BCA 1792T, which were all heading in the
same direction were involved.
According to Zambia Reports;
The Road Transport and Safety
Agency- RTSA says it has established
that the road accident which
happened last night where eight
people died on spot was caused by
the driver of the Dangote truck who
misjudged the distance when
overtaking.
RTSA Head of Public Relations
Frederick Mubanga says details on
the ground show that the accident
happened last night at about 25km
from Kapiri Mposhi town at a place
called Chinawe.
"The accident investigations have
established that the driver of the
Dangote truck was overspending, and
tried to overtake the two vehicles in
front of him but failed after seeing an
oncoming vehicle on the opposite
lane resulting into the truck hitting
the Altezza from behind forcing it off
the road," Mubanga says.
Mubanga says the truck went ahead
and hit into the minibus that was in
front of the Toyota Altezza.
He says another accident involving a
Dangote truck was recorded last
night on Great North Road after
Chikumbi area at around 20:30 hrs.
"This occurred when the driver of a
Toyota Sprinter registration number
ACT 1281 failed to maintain to his
lane hence hitting into the Dangote
truck registration number BCA 2931,"
says Mubanga. "Three people
sustained serious injuries and are in
critical condition with the driver being
unconscious."
Mubanga says the agency is
concerned with the number of road
traffic accidents involving Dangote
trucks in the past few months. He
has since assured that the agency
will be engaging the company
concerning their deteriorating road
safety record.
