A terrible motor accident along the Ganta-Saclepea highway has left three students dead, all of the same siblings, while a fourth victim is admitted at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital.
Eyewitnesses narrate to the New Dawn that the four brothers, who were students of the A.M. Gonquoi school in Boe Community, Ganta had gone for weekend to their parents in Cocopa, district#8 and were returning to the city in readiness for school when the truck allegedly ran into the bike that was bringing them, killing three instantly.
A load bell truck with plate number LB10313 had transported goods from Monrovia to Saclepea, and was returning to Monrovia when its driver lost control and ran into the students.
The lone survivor, identified as Archie Miaway, was riding the bike.
The accident occurred near Flumpa Town on the Ganta-Saclepea highway. The three siblings pronounced dead include 20-year-old Bill Miaway, who was a sixth grader, Franklin Miaway, 17, and Peterson Tokpah, 23.
Archie Miaway, who is the eldest brother, is currently in critical condition at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital.By Thomas Domah/Nimba–Editing by Jonathan Browne
