Frankfurt, Germany (TMT)- Only few days following the fiery crash which saw a CTM coach collide with a fish lorry that local witnesses said was “carrying gas” in the vicinity of Tan-Tan, a new video of the disaster was uploaded on Youtube (video underneath) today and goes hand in hand with what the second driver of the CTM coach, one of the four survivors, said in the aftermath of the event when insisting that “the way fire hollowed out the bus clearly shows that the fish lorry was carrying chemical products.”
The video features a strident black smock, a crystal-clear indication of a rich fuel combustion.
Insights from the video, including the CTM coach’s second driver testimony, go in full contraction with Morocco’s Ministry of Interior statement saying that they are “categorically denying the claims” that the fish truck was not used “in trafficking large quantities of petrol.”
It is worth reminding that even if the Moroccan authorities insisted in an official statement that the fish truck was not “used in trafficking large quantities of petrol,” various Moroccans took the statement as an insult to their intelligence, especially that when the emergency services came at the scenes, they only found charred bodies of the victims.
It is worth reminding that 34 passed away in what has been referred to in Morocco as “Faji3at Tan-Tan,” (The Tan-Tan disaster), mostly school athletes.
