Three Senior High School students have lost their lives through a heartbreaking accident which has left many Ghanaians talking.
It was just last week when another twelve students were involved in a crush but fortunately nobody died.
The cold story coming on our desks this morning indicates an M-20-GR 6731 motorcycle crashed into a trotro vehicle claiming three lives instantly.
The students were onboard the motorcycle when they were swept off by the commercial vehicle. Reports indicates that all the three Senior High School students affected by the accident are from the Presbyterian Senior High School at Adieso in the upper West Akim District of the Eastern Region.
The Trotro Driver was indulging in an overtaking when he hit the motorcycle killing the three all the three students instantly.
The Police have commenced investigations into the issue. However, many residents in the area have expressed shock over the death of the young boys.
Their fellow students are shedding tears over the accident since they were with them a few days ago.
Family members are also at a lost upon hearing the sudden death of the relatives.
The past week has been bad on the roads of Ghana after many accidents were recorded. Over thirteen persons lost their lives with several others being injured in over five separated accidents.
It becomes more heartbreaking when the accident involves students. Many have raised issues about the conduct of drivers.
It is believed that most of the accidents that happened on the roads are as a result of the carelessness on the part of drivers.
On the other hand, Motor riders have been advised to take precautionary measures when they are on the road. It is not acceptable for three students to be on a single motorcycle. The Police, Road Safety and other regulating bodies must up their game as the Easter celebration draws closer.
