Liberia: Two Dead, Two Fighting to Live on In Fatal Car Crash in Monrovia
Monrovia – Adamah Sillah and her friend Adeline Freeman are currently hospitalized and fighting for their lives following a very tragic motor accident. They survived, but two of their other friends met their untimely deaths.
The Liberia National Police (LNP) is yet to establish what led to the tragic accident in Congotown early Wednesday, June 17, involving two cars.
Police Spokesman Moses Carter via Facebook messenger Wednesday evening told FrontPageAfrica that they were still investigating the accident to establish the cause.
“We are yet to establish the cause of the accident, but what I can tell you is that the two cars involved came from the opposite directions. Both drivers are dead; two of the survivors are in critical conditions and undergoing treatment at the JFK. We are yet to get their parents and loved ones for further information,” Carter said.
Police Spokesman Carter informed FPA that there was one instant death on the spot and the other person who died, was pronounced dead early Wednesday morning. He named the two victims as Prince Kromah and Bene Davies.
Carter said the two surviving females, are currently hospitalized and taking treatment but in a critical condition.
He further told FrontPageAfrica that apart from the two ladies, who are in critical conditions, eight other persons, who, too, were involved in the accident, are undergoing treatment also.
According to him, police investigators are working with people, who claimed they were on the scene when the accident occurred.
“We are working with individuals who witnessed the accident to help us with the investigation. The police is doing all it can to reach out to family members of the victims,” he said.
It is reported that authorities at the John F. Kennedy Medical Hospital first rejected the accident victims on grounds that there were no beds. It is also alleged that the St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital also rejected them citing the same lack of beds. After unsuccessfully attempting at another health facility, they were forced to be brought back to JFK and they were finally taken in.
While the police are still trying to find out the identities of the two females, who are critically injured, FrontPageAfrica can identify them as Adeline Freeman and Adamah Sillah.
Facebook is being flooded with messages of sympathy, including prayers for the healing hands of God to save the lives of the two survivors.

It is reported that Prince Kromah was earlier seen at the famous Exodus Entertainment Center on Carey Street where he was noticed offering his friends drinks before he headed towards Congotown, where he met his untimely death.
This is the second tragic accident in the last two months to occur at the very spot where the accident occurred in Congotown.
