Several injured at Kwamo, Kumasi road accident 

February which was to start a good month for the people of Ashanti, has turned into terror as road accident continuous to be a problem in the region. Two drivers who couldn't control their steering wheel, have caused series of injuries to nine people, after they crashed at Kwamo. Kwamo which is a few kilometers to the regional capital Kumasi, is a town that lies on the Accra to Kumasi highway. It is one of the towns popular because of its location, and it is made up of mainly traders who goes to various markets to trade. Kwamo which is a developing town, is one filled with several speed ramps just to reduce the speed of over speeding drivers, to the maximum 50km/h.


A Toyota hiace which was loaded with passengers, coming from Accra to the cultural city Kumasi, lost brakes when a taxi suddenly crossed him at Kwamo. Solomon Adomako Ansah who sustained minor injuries to the forehead, said they were coming within the 50km/p maximum speed and if it wasn't for that, there would have been a very dangerous accident than what they experienced. The Toyota Hiace with registration plate GR - 8623 - 20 made a stop before entering Kwamo for someone to ease himself. The driver who is still in the hospital, was driving below 50km/p, when he saw some people trying to cross the road near Kwamo bus stop. 


They stopped again for them to cross, and was still driving below 50. Almost at Kwamo Free, near the Ultimate Barbering Shop, was when the driver saw a distress taxi. He tried to make way for him by moving from his lane for the taxi, and that caused him the accident. The taxi driver who is still unconscious at the Ejisu Government Hospital, lost his brakes and couldn't do anything. He was afraid of an incoming traffic, so he went straight to the traffic facing the opposite direction, in other for drivers in that lane to see he has a problem. He wasn't lucky as the steering wheel went the other direction when he tried to control it. It crashed the fore front of the Toyota Haice, and destroyed all the front bonnets. 


The haice which had over ten passengers in it, was able to be controlled since the driver was concentrating on the road, at the time the accident happened. The driver's side bonnet of the Toyota haice was all destroyed whiles the passenger side remained with minor hits. All passengers in the haice were all safe and unhurt except, six other passengers who were sitting behind the driver. They were all rushed to the Ejisu hospital for emergency treatment, whiles the minor victims were treated and discharged this morning at Kwamo Health centre. 


All three passengers of the taxi with registration number GX - 2563 - 18, sustained serious injuries and are all at the hospital receiving urgent health care. The accident which occurred on the early hours of this morning, has been taken by Kwamo Police, who were at the scene clearing both cars to make way for traffic. The taxi is damaged beyond recognition.
