A collision of a bus with a lorry on El Qutainah road, about 30 km north of Ad Duwaym in the White Nile State on Monday, caused the death of 23 people, and the injury of three others.

The accident occurred when the bus, on its way from Kosti to Khartoum, smashed into a lorry that was coming from the opposite direction, a driver told Radio Dabanga from Ad Duwaym.

“23 passengers were killed instantly. Three other passengers were seriously injured. They were transferred to the hospital of El Qutainah for treatment.”
