An accident at the Pobiman toll booth near Amasaman in the Greater Accra Region has caused injuries to a 30-year-old toll attendant.
One of eight tractor buckets which were being transported to Tamale in the Northern Region fell from the trailer and hit two of the booths, injuring the attendant who was rushed to the Ga West Municipal Hospital where she was treated and discharged
Portions of the booths were damaged while the glass windows were also shattered by the accident which occurred at about 5:00pm Wednesday. The accident resulted in a heavy traffic jam on the major trunk road linking the southern part of Ghana to the middle and northern belt.
Station Officer of the Amasaman MTTD, Chief Inspector Emmanuel Offei, told TV3 the buckets were not properly fastened to the trailer; something he blamed on the accident.
He advised drivers of heavy-duty vehicles to pay attention to goods they carry to avert such accidents
on our roads.
TV3 gathered the tractor buckets were being sent to Tamale to help in rice farming
