Three in critical condition after Ho accident 

Three people have been rushed to the Tema General Hospital, after a Supper truck carrying heavy load, collapsed on the Tema to Ho highways. The road which links several communities from Tema metropolitan to Ho Municipal, is the only highway that is used by commuters, who wants to get to Volta and Oti regions. The road is a busy road only during the weekdays, and less busy during the weekend. Because of its less traffic on weekends, majority of long truck drivers uses it during that time, in other to escape difficult traffic. 


A long vehicle trailer which was loaded from Tema harbour, was to deliver goods to Tsito, Perki, Asikuma and Ho, when the driver suddenly lost the wheels of the car and collapsed in the middle of the road. The truck was to deliver goods paid for by one Arimea, who operates within the Volta and Oti regions. Arimea wanted the truck to deliver the goods on Friday, but because of heavy traffic, the driver schedule the delivery to Sunday afternoon. The driver who was taking instructions from the warehouse at Tsito, could not control the wheels whiles he drove with one hand. 


Outskirts of Tsito, few kilometers to Asikuma, was where the trailer driver received a call to the direction of the warehouse at Tsito. The driver bold in himself, never thought the two container loads he was carrying on the trailer was controllable by one hand only, and crashed the truck. A pickup Hilux was making overtaking on the trailer's lane, and kept giving the trailer headlights, to slow down for him. But the trailer driver couldn't see the pickup truck coming whiles he was on the phone.


The trailer attendants thought their boss had seen the headlights of the pickup, and never cared to draw his attention to slow down. The trailer driver became aware of his environments when the pickup was closer to him, and couldn't do anything. He skipped off the road to avoid crashing the pickup, and lost control when he used his one hand to turn the heavy duty trailer. The trailer collapsed in the middle of the road, few seconds after the pickup truck passed.


The pickup truck with it's high speed, did not abandoned the victims after the trailer driver saved him from getting involved with the accident. The pickup truck together with other drivers, were able to save all three victims in the trailer, the driver and his two truck attendants. Whiles the driver sustained injuries to the head, the truck attendants crashed the windscreen of the trailer. Twum, One of the attendants had his hands been stuck in the windscreen, when first responders were attending to rescue them. They are all at the Tema General, receiving treatment. Drivers coming from Ho or going, are advised to slow down at Tsito, as police is yet to tow the trailer out of the road. Another trailer is on the way to offload the goods from the collapsed trailer, before it can be towed from the highway.
