January 27, a serious traffic accident occurred in Dschang, the capital of Ménoua, western Cameroon.
A 70-seat passenger car and a truck collided on the road near Deschamps, causing two cars to catch fire.
In an interview on the spot, Augustine, the governor of the Western Region, said that the accident killed 53 people and injured 29 others.
All the injured in the accident were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
At present, the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Sources pointed out that preliminary investigation showed that the truckload in the accident had a large amount of gasoline, brakes had problems, and the lighting system had problems.
A witness said that the fog was shrouded in the fog and the visibility was low, which was also one of the reasons for the collision between the two cars.
