The tragic road accident that occurred on the night of January 7 and 8, 2023, in the Kaffrine Region, about 250 kilometres southeast of Dakar has continued to send shockwaves throughout Senegal and beyond. The unfortunate accident, which resulted in the loss of 39 lives with 85 injuries, is without doubt, the most violent shock ever recorded in Senegal.
