It could have been another blood bath in Accra but for the timely and professional intervention of fire fighters who stopped a gas tanker from exploding.
This was after a Burkina Faso bound liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tanker capsized on the Accra-Tema Motorway.
Divisional Commander I Timothy Osarfo-Affum, the deputy Greater Accra regional commander of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), in an interview with Ghana News Agency (GNA) revealed his outfit received a distress call at in the early hours of the morning that a Burkina Faso bound gas fuel tanker was involved in an accident at the Adjei-Kojo near Ashaiman.
Fire fighters say some valves of the gas tanker were leaking and they managed to assist the driver's mate to tightened them to block any further leakage, which according to him, would have caused another big gas fire disaster on the motorway.
Meanwhile, drivers have been urged to drive with caution and also avoid over speeding and wrong overtaking.
