The accident happened very early this Friday in Saint-Louis. A truck containing luggage and people leaving for Touba skidded before overturning. According to Ousmane Lo, captain of the firefighters, the provisional toll shows 45 injured, including 7 seriously.
However, the captain calls on the drivers to be much more careful. “I appeal to the drivers to respect the highway code, to check the condition of the vehicle before departure, especially the tires, to use vehicles adapted for the trip and to avoid mixing luggage with human lives in one car, ”he said.
