LESOTHO Defense Force (LDF) paramedics yesterday came to the rescue of three injured passengers of two cars involved in a head-on collision along the Main North road in Maseru.

The accident occurred near the Sekamaneng Show Grounds, and involved a Mercedes Benz C Class sedan and a Volkswagen Golf.

According to Lieutenant Kelebone Mothibi, two men and a woman were injured as a result of the accident.

“One of the men suffered an upper body injury whose impact is still to be assessed by doctors as they were rushed to Queen ’Mamohato Memorial Hospital,” he said.

“The other two sustained injuries on their thighs. However these are only preliminary findings.”

Lt Mothibi said the LDF paramedics assisted the trio in conjunction with an ambulance team from the hospital. He also pointed out that it was not a privilege but a right for Basotho to receive assistance from the army.

“As the LDF, it is our obligation to help out where the citizens need us,” said.

“In keeping with our motto, ‘We are the hope for the people’, the LDF would not be doing Basotho a favour in assisting them.”

The cause of the accident was not established at the time of going to print as police spokesperson Superintendent Clifford Molefe said he had not yet received the report.
