While returning to Beude Forage, in the department of Kébémer located in the region of Louga, four students of the Kelle High School in terminale class were hit on the sidewalk by a refrigerated truck this Friday, January 8, 2021 around 5 pm. An extraordinary scenario that resulted in the death of one student at a time and the evacuation of the other three to the hospital, one of whom will lose his life on the way. Our special envoy Amadou Thiam was there.

A spectacular system consisting of three fire brigade vehicles and two Gendarmerie pick-ups were dispatched to evacuate the victims and report the circumstances of the accident. The driver and his apprentice were trapped after the front of the truck was knocked over. It took the fire soldiers more than half an hour to get them out.

The sadness and distress were easily visible on the faces of the principal of the institution, Dr. Fall, as well as the Censor M. Diagne, the Superintendent General M. Ndour and Intendant M. Diakhaté, all present to inquire into the situation. The students, victims of this accident, were on their way back after their class from 15:30 to 16:30 this Friday, January 8. They had no idea that if they walked on the sidewalk, they would be the victims of the loss of control of the driver of the refrigerated truck who lost control and drove into them.
