“The car diverted into the opposite lane and the articulator driver heading towards Cape Coast who decided to give him way but didn’t know there was a pit, fell into it, leaving the mate and the driver dead but still under the truck with us trying to bring them out during which the KIA Rhino and a speeding Ford bus also drove into the cargo,” he narrated.
