Ashiaman: Scores of Passengers Narrowly Escape Death

Scores of passengers onboard a Mercedes Sprinter Benz in the Ashiaman – Tema municipality with Registration Number GT 5337–13 and a KIA Picanto Taxi Cab with Registration Number GG 1466–18 nearly met their untimely deaths in the early hours of yesterday evening on the Ashaiman –Tema Overhead stretch.

According to some eyewitnesses, Kofi Amankwah and Emmanuel Gyasi, the driver of the sprinter vehicle was reckless in his attempt to avoid a little traffic jam along the Ashaiman Tema overhead stretch, which landed him in that accident.

They mentioned that quite a number of vehicles were seen in their lane. Still, the aforementioned sprinter driver was using the other shoulder of the road, hitting the KIA Picanto Taxi Cab in the process.

“We saw everything clearly and can say without fear of contradiction that the sprinter vehicle driver was reckless. However, it is the work of the police to investigate what necessitated the accident, which nearly claimed the lives of innocent passengers. For now, we only expect the culprit to be brought to justice”, they explained.

Meanwhile, some passengers on board the Sprinter vehicle shared different viewpoints, saying “The driver just lost control, and there was no truth regarding the assertion that he was driving carelessly or recklessly”.

“Sometimes drivers fail their brakes, and some of these happenings are inevitable. We are thankful to God for saving us from this near-fatal accident. It is imperative that drivers engage in periodic maintenance and check on their vehicles on a daily basis before conveying passengers”, they advised.

It didn’t end there, as a driver of a V8 vehicle meeting the scene rained insults and curses on the sprinter driver for receiving his repercussions just in time after scratching his V8 and not speeding off. This allegation on the part of the V8 driver nearly led to a brawl, as it took some individuals at the scene to calm their tempers.

As of the time of filing this report, there was still traffic congestion along the Ashaiman-Tema Overhead stretch, posing undue pressure and discomfort to motorists and pedestrians alike.
