At least 19 dead and nearly 80 injured, a truck packed with Eritrean and Somali migrants crashed near the Libyan town of Bani Walid early on Wednesday, officials said.
Bani Walid hospital manager Mohamed al-Mabrouk said the truck flipped over about 80 km (50 miles) south of Bani Walid. At least 78 people had been injured, eight of them seriously, he said.
“We did not receive the driver (at the hospital), and we don’t know what has happened to him,” said Mabrouk. “Most likely he’s survived otherwise he would be brought here.”
