Bus-truck collision kills 14, injures 38 in western Cameroon

At least 14 people were killed and 38 others badly injured when a 70-seater capacity bus collided with a truck early Wednesday on a busy highway in Cameroon’s West region, according to local police.

The collision, which resulted in a fireball that partly burned both vehicles, occurred at about 3:30 a.m. local time on a steep road near the town of Dschang, according to police officer Jones Nanda.

“Fourteen corpses have already been removed from the debris. We are still in search of more bodies,” Nanda told Xinhua on phone.

Those injured have been taken to a nearby hospital, according to officials.
