The deceased were all travelling in the small vehicle.

The lorry which was carrying tobacco bales, overturned upon impact and occupants were thrown out onto the tarmac via the windscreen.

A child believed to be around 9 to 10 years old survived the accident.

She was travelling in the small vehicle in which three of its occupants died on the spot after being trapped following the collision. zbc
