A tragedy occurred on Friday 25 August, in which a military truck, carrying two church choirs; saint Rita of Hiala choir and the sacred heart choir of Mvole, who were headed for a funeral, collided with another truck, coming from the opposite direction.
This took place between the Yaounde-Mbalmayo axis, precisely on the So’o bridge. The military truck carrying the choirs, had left Yaounde for a funeral, but they met their ends, when this other truck carrying a container collided with them after struggling to dodge another truck that was badly parked.
This incident took place under a heavy downpour. Circulation on that road was halted for some time till the time when the Army rescue unit had come and cleared it up.
Victims were transported to hospitals in Mbalmayo and Yaounde, for medical attention, while corpses were taken to the mortuary for subsequent identification by family members.
