A few people have been injured after a van overturned in a dangerous accident in Hulhumale’ on Monday night.
The accident took place after 11:00 p.m. on the maid road of Neighborhood 2. According to witnesses the van overturned after colliding into a car while driving at high speed.
While four people were injured during the accident, the details of their injuries are not yet clear.
Aasandha Company, which runs Hulhumale’ Hospital, said that eight people in total were brought into the hospital due to various accidents on Monday night. Three of them were brought after being injured when their motorbikes skidded on the road. Another sustained head injuries after skidding off the speed break on the road and is still being treated at the hospital, they said.
Since the opening of Sinamale’ bridge, connecting Male’ and Hulhule’, last Friday there has been a sudden spike in accidents on the bridge and the highway, most of them caused due to over-speeding on the bridge.
Many have also noted the lack of lighting on the highway and the lack of bright paint on the speed breaks, which makes it difficult for them to be noticed while driving or riding at night.
