Mr. Walker was driving a maroon Nissan Primera vehicle, license plate number BC-1829, when he lost control while coming down Johnson Street toward the Gabriel Tucker Bridge and dump into the Slipway ditch which has not been barred.
According to Mr. Walker when he spoke with the Daily Observer, he had brought some journalist who had covered the M.V. Logus Hope one of the world’s largest Christian ship Ministries vessel at the NPA to town when he noticed that his car breaks had problem.
“I brought two journalists from Real TV and Truth FM to town and drop them off at the office on Ashmun Street. My breaks first give up in front of CWA and I knew it had a problem,” he said.
It was then that he decided to drive slowly to reached Clara Town and get the breaks fixed but coming down Johnson street hill he lost control and steered the car into the ditch along the road.
“I was driving slowly to get to Clara Town and have the breaks fixed. While coming down Johnson street hill, there were pedestrians and cars ahead of me and I had no breaks. I try to avoid running into them by trying to park against the sidewalks, but I when over it and into the ditch,” he averred.
Meanwhile, the M.V. Logus Hope vessel is expected to be in Liberia for about three weeks. Their mission is to minister the word of God and offer free dental care to some Liberians as well.
