He said the drivers of both vehicles are also currently in critical condition following the accident.
“It happened this evening about 4:30 pm, nine confirmed dead, including one and half year old child, about twenty are at the hospital, we cleared the road, the drivers are also included in the injury,” he said.
He added that it is difficult to explain how the whole accident occurred, explaining that there are no potholes on the said road where it happened.
“You cannot see anything, there is no pothole [On the road], there is no meandering of the road here, the road is very straight the road is smooth, and so you cannot see why there is always an accident on this particular lane,” DSP Ahiamale stressed.
