At around 12 o’clock this Sunday a Lalgy tanker truck arriving at the bridge over the Metuchira River at Inchope crashed into one of the barriers there. The victims were there putting clothes to dry and were ran over by the truck .
The head of the Gondola Traffic Police brigade revealed that four of the seven victims lost their lives on the spot and the remaining died on the way to the Inchope Health Centre.
Adelina de Araújo said there was a possibility that the accident was caused due by excessive speed compounded by driving under the influence of alcohol.
“In fact, we have confirmed that the accident involved a heavy articulated lorry and a bus in which children between one and 12 years of age died. The alcohol test on the driver detected about 1.1 milligrams of alcohol per litre in the blood, so we concluded that the driver was drunk behind the wheel,” Araujo said.
