Delmas 33, Haiti Tragic Accident (WARNING Graphic Images)
Several died after a driver of a trailer lost control in Route de Delmas 33 in Port-au-Prince Haiti. The accident happened late on Monday, January 16, 2012 around 10:30pm.
According to Pascal Antoine, the truck crushed cars and as well as dozens of motorcycles, pedestrians and street merchants before flipping over in front of the National Television Station on Delmas 33.
When I arrived on the scene there was mass chaos as police officers tried to control the crowds. Dead bodies littered the streets and body parts could be seen in crushed cars. Even president Martelly made an appearance and could seen from the Haiti National Television balcony. I quickly left the scene as bulldozers started clearing the debris and there were concerns that they might disturb they high-tension writes overhead causing more casualties. The entire scene was a horrible mess.”
