Road accidents have seen the death of many people from babies to very old people, as well celebrities like, Ebony, Suzzy Williams, Terry Bonchaka, etc.
Most of the causes of these accidents are as a result of carelessness on the part of the drivers, over speeding while driving, non-adherence to road traffic regulations, wrongful overtaking by over confident drivers.
In the case of the Awoshie accident, the cars involved in the accident seem to be driving at top speed thus, resulting in the accdent.
