The accident caused a huge traffic that stretched from the Dora highway all the way back to Jounieh. Added to that, a police adjutant, by the name of Hashem H (May he R.I.P), was killed and over 10 inmates were injured. When I first read the news, I thought I would be looking at an armored vehicle, not a Hino van with a custom-made box to fit the prisoners. If the container where the prisoners are kept is not designed properly to keep the van balanced, it could overturn very easily.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying we should buy armored vehicles for the police, but if we can’t afford them, we should be driving more carefully and slowly, because according to LBC’s report the convoy was flying.
