5-metre height

Many roads with overhead bridges like those on the Achimota stretch have a height clearance of five metres.

This means a vehicle and its load must not be up to five metres to pass under the bridges or even use the road since one has to definitely pass under one when plying the oute.

But it looks the driver of this vehicle did not adhere to the height clearance regualtion and has ended in a bad situation.


In a video which has been sighted by YEN.com.gh, the truck is seen under the bridge with some people trying to remove of some of the goods.

Standing by is another vehicle which is empty and ready to pickup the excess goods in order to free the stuck vehicle.
