A partially uncovered sewage manhole at a Xemxija major road caused an accident on Friday afternoon.
The accident occurred at around 15:12 when a van driver lost control of the vehicle when its tyre burst when it impacted with the uncovered manhole on the road. The van ended up colliding with another car however, fortunately, no one was hurt in the accident.
The partially uncovered manhole, which had been in its current state for the past two weeks, apart from endangering drivers especially at night, is causing an inconvenient to visitors at Xemxija due to its strong sewage odor.
The manhole remained uncovered however two cones were placed on each side.
