Five people died Wednesday, January 16, 2019, in a motor accident close to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Mynewsgh.com, the driver of the passenger car which was returning from Aflao heading towards the central business district of Accra was said to have lost control of his vehicle.
Some of the survivors said the driver was over speeding and so veered off the road and crashed into the huge trees along the road.
Several minutes after the accident, the victims had been abandoned by onlookers.
It took a GBC driver, John Agbeko, to take the injured and deceased to the 37 Military Hospital where there was only one stretcher to carry the victims at the time of filing the report.
In a related development, a young girl of the West African Secondary School was knocked down by a car while crossing the road at Adenta.
The incident sparked a demonstration where aggrieved citizens of Madina and Adenta registered their displeasure about the failure of government to construct footbridges along the highway.
After the demonstration, the Ministry of Highways and government began to construct the footbridges.
Meanwhile the government has said that they are putting in place measures to minimize road accidents this year.
Furthermore, government has cautioned drivers and car owners to keep their cars in shape so as to reduce road accidents.
