One injured as tree falls on tricycle at Kumasi Race Course Market

A tricycle operator is in critical condition after a tree fell on him at the Race Course Market in the Ashanti Region.

He suffered a severe spine injury and was rushed to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for treatment.

The incident happened on Thursday, May 23, leaving many bystanders in shock.

The operator was trapped in his tricycle for several minutes until passersby managed to rescue him.

According to an eyewitness, Kweku Yeboah, a vehicle rammed into the tree, which caused it to break and crush the tricycle.

“The tree had been weakened for three days now after a long vehicle truck crashed into it,” he said.

“We tried our best to get the attention of authorities at The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly KMA to help cut it cut it down but all our efforts proved futile”.

National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) personnel from the region later arrived to clear the debris from the area.

Tree accidents have been rampant in the last few weeks due to heavy rains.

In a similar incident, one person was in critical condition after a tree fell on an SUV vehicle and a motorcycle at Cantonment, near the Italian Embassy in Ghana.

The incident happened after torrential rainfall in several parts of Accra on Monday, May 6.

The heavy wind caused the tree to uproot, slamming into the front of the Toyota SUV with registration number GE—685-14 and directly onto the motor rider.

Emergency responders from the Ghana National Fire Service (GHNFS) swiftly arrived at the scene.

Using chainsaws, they worked to lift the tree and removed the vehicles that were trapped beneath.

They also cleared the remaining debris from the road to ensure the free flow of traffic.
