At least two women from Nyanruet village of Aweil East County, Northern Bahr El Ghazal State were tragically killed on Sunday while walking along the highway towards Yargot Piny-dong.

State Traffic Police Director, Mou Dut blamed the accident on “over speeding by a reckless driver”.

He stated the driver lost control of the vehicle, striking and killing the two women, believed to be sisters-in-law married to brothers.

Dut confirmed the driver is in custody in Aweil for investigation.

“We have gathered details and will submit a report to the prosecuting attorney,” he said.

He added that the car involved in the tragic road accident was unlicensed and the driver lacked a valid license as well. “These factors, combined with speeding, caused this accident,” Dut emphasized.

The traffic police director urged drivers to exercise caution and adhere to speed limits to prevent similar accidents in the future.
