WASA leak again outside Massy Stores

Thousands of gallons of water went down the drain after another water leak developed outside Massy Superstores in La Romaine over the weekend.

The leak caused damage to the Gulf View Link Road, and resulted in slush gushing down into residents’ properties.

Doubles vendor Johnathan Ramkhelawan said when he arrived to set up his stall at 6:30am, he saw the water flowing.

"It was a small leak and then it got worse. The water overflowing since last night. It is really deep now," Ramkhelawan said.

He said there were two water leaks within recent times.

WASA employee falls ill… causes accident

One man has been hospitalised following a freak accident involving six vehicles, in the capital this morning.

Eyewitnesses told us that at around 7 o’clock, a man driving a WASA van sped up at a red light onto traffic which had the right-of-way, and collided with an Almera vehicle.

However, the van did not stop there as the driver’s foot was on the accelerator and pushed the Almera onto more cars—hitting five more in the process.

When the van eventually came to a stop, the engine was still revving, which meant the man's foot was still on the accelerator.
