A dangerous accident involving a collision of a car into a truck took place on the Sinamale Bridge late on Tuesday night.

The accident occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m. at a traffic light on the Hulhule section of the bridge, which connects the capital Male to airport island Hulhule.

Maldives Police Service stated that the car driver suffered injuries but did not sustain any fatal wounds.

As heavy showers taking place across the Male region may impact vehicles crossing the newly built bridge, Police have advised pedestrians and drivers to exercise caution while travelling across Sinamale Bridge and the ring road of Male.

Several accidents have already occurred since the Sinamale Bridge was opened to the public on September 7.
