The small truck almost kissed the Solwezi River waters fortunately survived by getting stuck on a water pipe.
This took place in the night around 22:00. The driver was reported to have survived but sustained injuries…
Generally the problem is that the bridge has no pillars, and there are no signs that would warn the drivers either side.
A number of accidents have so far been reported to have occurred at the same area. Three days ago, another driver survived hitting into a tree. It could have have gone straight into the river as he drove from mitech area.
Responsible institutions such as the RDA, Constructor, and the Municipal council must look into this seriouslyby putting road signs and controls in order to avoid loss of lives.
