Residents near the Nungua-Baatsona Filling Station area were met with a horrific scene as they woke up to the aftermath of a fatal car crash that claimed the lives of two individuals.
According to an eyewitness report, the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday, September 18, 2023, at approximately 3:00 am.
A speeding Mercedes Benz, carrying four occupants, collided with a stationary KIA truck that had been parked by the side of the road in the vicinity.
The eyewitness further explained that the KIA truck had been left in front of the Shell Filling Station on the Nungua-Baatsonaa stretch since Friday, September 15, due to a malfunctioning front tire.
The driver had used a jack to support the vehicle and left it in that location.
In a video capturing the accident scene, the eyewitness mentioned that the occupants of the Mercedes Benz were known for frequently using the road at high speeds, and this tragic collision had fatal consequences.
Additionally, the eyewitness noted that among the victims of the accident were two Ghanaians and two Nigerians who had nearly collided with him earlier while driving recklessly.
“The truck you are seeing over here was packed there three days ago. So, I just heard a loud bang around 3-5 a.m. this morning. When I came out, the Benz was coming from the Ecobank direction and these people; they are two male Nigerians and two female Ghanaians; they usually drive on top speed on this road after drinking. They almost knocked me down three days ago when I was going to Dansoman.
“It happens that they didn’t know about the spoilt truck so when the driver of the Benz realised it, he sharply swerved but crashed into the truck with passenger side and that killed a man and woman. The driver and one other lady, however, survived but in a critical condition,” the eyewitness narrated.
