The accident occurred when a fuel truck rammed into a private car registration number UBK 002Q and hit it from the rear, causing many cars to crush into each other.

Although there were no bodies reported at the scene, eyewitnesses reveal that several people were rushed to nearby hospitals for medical attention after they sustained injuries.

Bystanders attribute the accident to an error by the truck driver, whom they say failed to overtake the private car from the right-hand side, as the taxi slowed down.


By the time of filing the story, the vehicles were still at the scene and the victims had been rushed to health centers, while the traffic police were yet to arrive.
