Cameroon: Priest perishes in deadly car crash along Douala-Yaounde highway

Father Hervé Marie Simo of the Saint John Congregation in Yaounde has perished in a tragic road accident that occurred Wednesday December 30 in Pouma, a locality along the Douala-Yaounde highway.

Sources say Father Hervé Marie’s car collided head on with a heavy duty truck in Pouma, Littoral region, leaving the prelate dead on the spot.

The crushed state of the car suggests how brutal the collusion was making it quite impossible for the driver, Father Hervé Marie to have cheated death.

On board his vehicle were four other church members, who are said to have incurred injuries and are being attended to in a health facility.

The deceased was chaplain of the renowned College Vogt in Yaounde.
