Five persons were pronounced dead with several injured involving a Toyota Hillux pickup traveling to River Gee County and a motorcycle at Todee junction along the Monrovia/Kakata highway.

According to a Liberian journalist, Emmanuel Tophic Degleh who also posted photos of the accident on his face book wall noted that the situation was mournful as dozens of residents watched the scene in sorrow.

However, some unconfirmed report said the victims were on their way to River Gee for the Voter’s Registration exercise, but it is not known whether they were being trucked as it is done by politicians trucking people from one end to another.

Detail will be posted in our subsequent news report.
