24 Killed as Minibus Overturns in Morocco

Rabat: A tragic road accident in Morocco has claimed the lives of 24 people. The incident occurred when a minibus carrying passengers to a weekly market in Demnate overturned on a bend.

Local authorities have launched an investigation into the cause of the accident, but it is believed that the driver may have lost control of the vehicle.

Road accidents are unfortunately common in Morocco, and this is the latest in a series of fatal incidents. In a previous incident in Brachoua, 11 people were killed when their minibus collided with a tree.

The use of coaches and minibuses for transportation is widespread in Morocco, especially among poorer citizens traveling in rural areas. However, this mode of transportation has been associated with numerous accidents and casualties.

The National Road Safety Agency reports an average of 3,500 road deaths and 12,000 injuries annually in Morocco. Efforts to improve road safety have been ongoing, with a goal to halve the mortality rate by 2026.

It is crucial for the authorities to continue implementing measures and campaigns to enhance road safety and reduce the number of tragic accidents on Moroccan roads.
