On February 17, 2018, at about 5:15 am, freight train No. 3252 came to an emergency stop after hitting a minibus that was stopped in the middle of level crossing No. 12001 between Dalia and Melloussa.
This incident unfortunately caused the death of 6 people and injured 14 others. They were transported to the hospital Mohammed V in Tangier following a fast intervention of both the local authorities and the fire department.
An investigation was launched to determine the circumstances of this incident.
ONCF extends its condolences to the families of the victims and again calls for caution and respect for road signs around the crossings.
