One person has been confirmed dead, while others are in critical condition after an articulated truck unexpectedly ran into individuals at Anloga Junction in Kumasi on Thursday, December 7, 2023.
The loaded truck was heading towards the Airport roundabout when the unfortunate incident occurred.
According to eyewitnesses, bystanders were alerted to run for safety when the truck started moving uncontrollably.
Unfortunately, some individuals at the roadside could not escape the disaster.
Three persons were trapped under the articulated truck, and it took fire service officers over an hour to free them.
The first two individuals, both females, were promptly transported to the hospital in separate ambulances for treatment.
The third person, however, was found dead.
The police subsequently conveyed the body to the morgue.
This is the second accident recorded in the same area in less than one month.
Two weeks ago, two individuals, including a seven-month-old baby, sustained severe injuries after a truck transporting goods collided with shops at the same Anloga junction.
The incident occurred around 2 pm when the truck driver, reportedly transporting biscuits and beverages from Tema to Burkina Faso, lost control and crashed into some shops belonging to food vendors and other traders, causing irreparable damage to the shops.
