Senegalese vehicle impounded after it ploughed into barrier at Senegambia Bridge

Damage was caused when a commercial bus ploughed into a barrier at Senegambia Bridge.

Witnesses said a Senegalese commercial bus that was conveying Eid celebrants crashed into a barrier as it ‘forcefully’ tried to use the bridge. The incident happened on Saturday August 10.

A witness told The Fatu Network: “The bridge closes at 7pm but this bus came and wanted to force its way.

“The driver was insisting he will use the bridge because they [Senegal] built it.”

A Gambia Ports Authority official confirmed the incident telling The Fatu Network: “The vehicle is at Farafenni police station. GPA is saying the driver should replace the barrier.”

The police spokesman could not be reached for comment.
