Source The Ghana Report

A Kia Rhino truck with registration number AC 1568-22 has run over a footwear seller, killing him on the spot at Mampong in the Ashanti Region.

The deceased has only been identified as Akwasi, aged 43.

According to an eyewitness, Akwasi met his untimely death while he was packing his goods to end his daily sales on Monday.

Narrating the incident, the truck driver, Kwaku Ofori, said he was about to offload poultry feed and suffered a brake failure.

He tried to reverse the gears, but the load pushed the truck down a steep slope from Video City to the main lorry station.

Unfortunately, the brakes and horns ceased, and he could, therefore, not control the steering wheel, crushing Akwasi, who was on the side of the road to death.

The vehicle also crashed into a fried rice vendor’s container and hit a storey building.

This incident comes after one person died, and seven were severely injured in an accident involving a Hyundai H100 with registration number GG 4311-15 on the Somanya Road in the Eastern Region.

The accident occurred around 5:00 pm on Tuesday at the Akorley community near Somanya.

The Hyundai car somersaulted multiple times after hitting a pothole and bursting a tyre.

The vehicle ultimately landed in a nearby stream, killing one person instantly and leaving seven others battling for their lives.

The injured victims are currently receiving treatment at the Yilo Krobo District Hospital, while the body of the deceased has been deposited at the morgue.
