Officials from Hodan district reached the scene to assess the accident but declined to give comments on the incident. Also, traffic police officers who reached the area are investigating the matter.

Major transport vehicles from Mogadishu seaport carry a lot of goods that makes it hard for the vehicle to get a good balance hence accidents in the capital.

The government has less effort to stop this menace that claims the lives of the people at the major roads in the city.
