Guinea Bissau: 18 Killed 14 Injured In Truck Collision

18 people were killed and 14 injured in the small west African state of
Guinea-Bissau late Friday when a minibus collided with a truck, police said.

An eye witness said the truck appeared to have been speeding when the driver lost control and
collided head-on with the minibus near Bissauzinho, around 15 kilometres (15 miles) from the capital Bissau. 

Sources said the bus had been overloaded and that at least 10 of the injured were in a serious condition.
Both drivers were killed and the minibus was totally crushed.

Authorities issued an appeal for blood donors after the accident, which occurred around 8:00
pm (2000 GMT).

Guinea-Bissau lies between Senegal and Guinea. The country has a very bad economy and it is one of the poorest countries in the world.

I am the friendly type who finds joy in what I love to do, and that is blogging.
