He said that a private Hyundau jeep with registration number LND 108 GL, had a head on collision with another vehicle, an ash-coloured Toyota Sequoia, with registration number ABC 403 HP.
“The accident occurred due to speeding, leading to the loss of control by one of the vehicles. Also, 14 persons were involved without any casualty.
“We have 11 males and 3 females and the injured victims among them have been taken to Lowo clinic Gbongan for further medical treatment,” Benamesia said.
