A typical scene of a road accident in Ghana.
About 771 people have died in road accidents in the first quarter of this year, 2021. This year's reports of road accidents appear to be getting out of hand; since we are almost already running into the thousands, with respect to the number of road accident cases even before the end of April.

Seth Kwame Boateng, a Multimedia reporter, who works with Joy News TV, reporter has discovered that, even the figure of 771; which had been presented to the general public by the police is not exhaustive. According to him, he realized that police sometimes do not get to capture all the figures.

This morning, in his report to Sampson Lardy Ayenini, the host of the News File program on Joy News, Seth Boateng revealed to Sampson, who then disclosed it to the viewers and the listeners that; "over 50 road accident deaths were recorded in one hospital".
Meanwhile, it may interested one to know that not all of these numbers have have been reported to the police.
Indeed, some may have been sent to the hospital straight away without a formal complaint being lodged with the police. Hence, this gives an indication that there is a possibility of the exact never of road accidents in Ghana, this far, excessing the reported 771 figure.
However, there is need for us all to be each other's keeper and play our roles properly to help minimize road accidents to the barest minimum.
