Road Accident

[PHOTOS]: The heavy traffic that occurred during the weekend on the Accra - Kumasi road

 Traffics are inevitable as they happened without any substantive notice to victims.

 The situation on the Accra - Kumasi road during the weekend was unprecedented. It began in the afternoon on Friday around 1pm from Konongo through to Linda door. 

 We have seen a lot of traffics in Accra but this particular one has left everyone speechless and wondering.

 As an eyewitness to the incident, the traffic was as a result of many vehicles traveling the weekend from Accra to Kumasi and vice versa. There was one vehicle which had a fault and was left in the middle of the road at Asaamang-Tamfoe but it was conveyed from its position some minutes later.

The main cause of the traffic could be akin to the overcrowding of youth of Konongo who protested that there was a hit and run of a resident. This made them block the road refusing vehicles to pass, however there were a lot of vehicles traveling during the weekend and with the long vehicles which moves with slower pace, they all contributed to the situation.

 The movement of vehicles as a result of the traffic has never happened in the history of Ghana if I may not be exaggerating. We spent more than 2 hours from Osino to Linda door —Insutem. 

 It is obvious that persons attending funerals and other occasions last weekend may miss reaching their destinations on time if they took the Accra - Kumasi road.

 Meanwhile security personnel were seen mobilizing protocols to curb the situation and prevent any unwanted incident that may arise as a result of the traffic. They [Security personnel] refused movement of some vehicles which took the opposite way in attempt to dolge the incident.

 That notwithstanding, passengers were seen taking a walk from Bonsu-Junction to Osino and Anyinam respectively. This idea by passengers was an optimistic one as there wasn't any sign that the traffic would be curbed anytime sooner.

 On Sunday evening around 6:30pm the situation was calmed but not totally curbed.
