Hospital officials said that four persons arrived at the medical institution around 8.30 am with injuries to the leg, shoulder and hip.

Based on the information this newspaper received, the driver of minibus was attempting to overtake another vehicle and apparently did not see the truck driving across the road until it was too late. By the time, he applied brakes it was too late and he ended up crashing into the truck which was already halfway across the road.
