13 persons feared dead in a gory accident at Awoshie

A gory accident occurred this dawn around 3:45 am at Awoshie in the Ablekuma North Constituency claiming about 13 lives.

This was following a collision between their public transport and an abandoned truck at Banyard intersection in Awoshie in Accra.

The red passenger vehicle, registered as GW 6302-21, collided with an unattended truck bearing registration number GB 8896-21 and the brand inscription “Everpure.”

Eyewitness account has it that the driver of a red Toyota Haice bumped into a stationary KIA Rhino Truck loaded with bags of sachet water which has been left parked in the middle of the road due to mechanical fault.

The dead all-women except the driver, mate and a few others were believed to be heading to Accra from Ablekuma.

The absence of traffic lights and street lights along the main Awoshie Pokuase Highway has been a long-standing issue which has bothered the good people of Awoshie.

All attempts to reach out to those in authority have always been an exercise in futility.

When residents rise up and demonstrate, they are met with brute force from the police and sometimes arrested.

Residents have therefore called on the Assembly Member for the Awoshie electoral area, the MCE and the Outgoing MP Honorable Shiela Bartels to quickly come to their aid by fixing the street lights and getting the traffic lights to work.

“For how long will you look on while our people die? The time has come for the good people of Awoshie to come together and stage a mammoth demonstration against those in charge. It is time to hold them accountable,” a resident said.
