Road Accident

Another Serious Accident Has Occurred In Takoradi Today: Over 20 Persons In Critical Condition

“From Accra to Takoradi, I had twenty passengers in my car. This private automobile driver was the one who got in my way. I slammed on the brakes as hard as I could, but my front tyre broke and the car somersaulted.”

On Tuesday, April 13, 2021, the driver of a sprinter vehicle with the registration number GX -7799-20 made the following statement after his car collided with another vehicle.

On the main Takoradi-Accra Highway, a fatal accident occurred. The accident claimed the lives of more than twenty people.

A Kia Sorento private vehicle with registration number WR 44-12 passed the Sprinter driver who was travelling to Takoradi at the intersection of the major Mpintsin Township. The sprinter driver hit his brakes in an attempt to save the situation, but he blew one of his front tyres in the process.

In the process, the sprinter bus collided with a private vehicle. After losing control of the vehicle, the driver ended up on the side of the road. The sprinter bus flipped over, trapping all of the passengers inside.

The people who were trapped in the truck needed the help of the Ghana National Fire Service and the MTTD.

Fortunately, no one was killed, but the majority of them had significant injuries and were sent to the hospital for treatment.

The motorist apologised and blamed his tyres for the accident. He also pointed accusing fingers at the private car driver, accusing him of being reckless, and blaming Satan for the entire crush.


“The private driver swerved into my lane, and there was nothing I could do about it before I noticed it. Because I was unable to apply my brakes quickly enough, we collided and my car fell in the bush. It could have been a lot worse if I had been speeding. I had fourteen passengers, all of them were injured in some way. My front tyre blew out when it happened, and I ended up down there. Please forgive me, but Satan was the one who brought it about.” He made a point.

The truck has been transported to the MTTD yard in Sekondi for additional investigation in the meantime.
