Over 20 killed in Cameroon bus crash

At least 21 people have been killed after a bus collided with a truck in Cameroon’s western region, officials said on Monday. "A serious traffic accident occurred on Sunday, June 23, 2019, around 3 p.m. local time (1400 GMT), in the locality of Lagoue, one kilometer from Baham in the western region," the Ministry of Communication said in a statement.

The 30-sit bus was en route to the country's economic capital Douala, from Bafoussam capital of the western region when it collided with a truck on the highway.

Authorities attribute the accident to overloading and high speed. “The 30-sit bus had thirty-seven people on board, while the driver drove at high speed beyond regulatory standards," the statement said.

The injured were transported to Bafoussam Regional Hospital for treatment.
