One of the accidents, which killed four people and wounded another, occurred on the stretch between Musserra commune and the Nzeto municipal seat on the national road (EN100), according to a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior in the region, Manuel Mpanzo Kassua, in an interview to Angop.

The accidant was caused by the overturning of a light vehicle that was making the Luanda / Mbanza Kongo route, which was provoked by speeding.

The two other accidents, according to the source, took place in the municipality of Mbanza Kongo and consisted of a collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle, as well as run over, with one death and two injured.
