A driver's chilling account
He recounted that he was coming from Boadie to Bogoso and had bypassed the roundabout.
''The Daf truck had already climbed the hill but suddenly all we could see was the truck reversing by itself so I shouted for all my passengers to exit the vehicle.
''Three of us in the vehicle managed to exit but one person could not exit so he died,'' he said.
