A car belonging to the Nimba County Ebola Response Team has been involved in a terrible motor accident along the Ganta-Bunadin highway in district # 8, Nimba County, killing a female occupant instantly and leaving several others critically wounded.
The vehicle was donated by the steel company ArcelorMittal to the Nimba County Ebola Team and subsequently turned over to the Ganta Ebola burial team. It has been allegedly commercialized in the district, transporting market women from one market to another.
Eyewitness told The NewDawn Nimba correspondent that the burial car was transporting marketers from Ganta to Bunadin recently when it lost control and crashed into a nearby creek. According to eyewitness account, one of the marketers identified as Ruth Kpoblie, died on the scene, while two others are said to be in critical condition at the Ganta Methodist Hospital with three fear missing.
The Ebola burial car is reportedly seen daily in the traffic in Ganta transporting marketers. The head of the Nimba County Health Team, Dr. Collins Bowah, has declined to speak on the matter on condition that he wants to make further contacts with relevant sources.
However, the deputy traffic commander for the Nimba County police detachment, Wilson Nyanamah, confirmed that the vehicle had six occupants onboard but one of them died; two are in critical condition but the other three have not been located.
