I can now confirm that there were no casualties in the crash. But a man was injured.
In all, 21 vehicles (mainly from the car shop) were completely burnt including several motorcycles. And many other vehicles in the car shop were severely damaged in the course of removing them or directly by the inferno.
Men from various government agencies are still on ground while the men and crew from the LASEMA RESPONSE UNIT (LRU) have removed the wreckage.
The crash was caused by the diesel laden tanker jackknifing on ascending the bridge.
Also a shop housing furniture and boxes beside the bridge was completely razed to the ground.
