Road Accident

N/R: 37-Year-Old And Her 7-Months-Old Baby Crushed To Death By A Tanker.

In the Northern region, okada, or motorized transportation, is particularly popular. Almost every family in these areas has at least one or two motors that they utilize for daily tasks or routine occupations. Even elderly ladies and men are capable of safely operating a vehicle. Locals ride their motorcycles to and fro on their farmlands because farming is the main source of income in these areas. Maame Salamatu Adamu, her 7-month-old baby, 5-year-old child, and 10-year-old child, however, were not so fortunate while riding a motorcycle.

Maame Salamatu Adamu and her three children were passengers on a motorcycle driven or controlled by Salamatu, according to trustworthy sources. A massively loaded tanker sounded its horns at them as they drove to their destination. Maame Salamatu was terrified and panicked, so she chose to take the other lane in order to allow the tanker to pass. Unfortunately, she collided with an Aboboyaa and was thrown back into her former lane and under the tanker that passed her, instantly killing her and the 7-month-old baby.

According to ACP David Fiankoh Okyere, the PRO for the Bolgatanga police department, residents at the accident scene told the police that the death of maame Salamatu Adamu and her child should be blamed on the Aboboyaa rider because it was he who hit the family under the truck, causing the mother and her child's death. Since yesterday evening, the other two youngsters have been in critical condition in the government hospital.
