According to the eyewitnesses, the inscription on the van indicated that the ambulance belonged to the Akim Oda Constituency. Narrating how it all happened, the road user who witnessed the whole event noted that the driver was negotiating a sharp curve on reaching the Adeiso township, but because of the rate at which he was running he lost control and skidded off the road, knocking down a pedestrian in the process.
