Swift action by first responders and firefighters successfully brought the inferno under control, and the fires have been extinguished.

However, the aftermath of the crash has left the N3 freeway entirely blocked in both directions, leading to a significant traffic backlog.

Emergency services, including paramedics and law enforcement, quickly arrived at the scene to provide aid to the injured and manage the situation.

Currently, there are no official reports regarding the extent of injuries or casualties, but efforts are underway to provide medical attention to those involved in the accident.
