In December, the Ghana Road Safety Commission, in partnership with the Ghana High Authority, launched a number of programs to encourage drivers to be cautious and drive safely in order to avoid road accidents. Most people expected an increase in accidents in December because so many people travel to celebrate Christmas. However, compared to what is happening in January 2022, there were not as many accidents in December.
It appears some drivers have gone go back to their old reckless driving after the campaign on road safety. A very sad video has hit online showing an accident between an excavator and two passenger tricycles (aboboyaa). Watching the video, you can see a lot of people at the scene trying to get the victims of the accident out of the vehicles.
According to Joy News, this accident took place on the Asankrangwa road. Asankrangwa is the capital of Amenfi West Municipal, a district in the Western Region of Ghana. The report indicates that the two nurses in your picture did not make it out of the accidents. These nurses were in the two tricycles run down by the excavator. The people who got injured have been sent to the hospital to receive treatment.
The report did not indicate how the excavator runs into the two tricycles but some eyewitnesses believe it is probably overtaking which resulted in this accident.
