At about midday of Wednesday, 6/11/19 around 1100HRS a team of FRSC Personnel assigned to monitor and control traffic were approached by a truck driver who intended to make an enquiry from one of the members of the team.
In the course of the inquiry, a Mercedes Benz ran into the patrol vehicle. This killed the arresting Marshal and the other person while they were discussing. Another FRSC official occupying the driver’s seat was also seriously affected by the crash.
