“Four tap-tap passengers were killed and several others were injured in the accident,” police spokesman Gary Desrosiers told AFP.
Two MINUJUSTH policemen and a Haitian policeman were among the wounded, Desrosiers said.
MINUJUSTH put the toll at four dead and nine wounded, among them a Haitian citizen and eight United Nations police.
