One person, a woman, is feared dead and another seriously injured in a Tuesday morning accident at Awoshie-Abranteɛ in Accra involving two vehicles.
The unidentified woman is said to have mistakenly crossed the road from the Odorgono SHS side to the other side without looking at her right.
A Renault vehicle registered GW 4381 – 17 in an effort to save the woman, rammed into the KIA mini truck with the registration GX 1746 – 18, causing it to somersault into the other lane before knocking down the woman.
“Her head was severely hurt and I fear she will survive,” an eyewitness told 3news.com
“The KIA driver is seriously hurt too but not to the extent of the woman’s injuries. They have all been rushed to the hospital,” another eyewitness said.
When 3news.com got to the scene the Kia mini truck had turned upside down with the frontage of the Renault slightly damaged.
At the time of filing this report, the police were taking statements from eyewitnesses and the Renault driver who escaped unhurt in the accident that occurred some minutes after 6:00 a.m.
Some residents who rushed to the accident scene appealed to government to construct a footbridge at that stretch of the Ablekuma-Awoshie Highway as they complained crossing has become dangerous and stressful for them.
