Aftermath of Accident on the Spintex Road
The picture you see here is what remains of a ghastly accident Saturday evening on the Spintex Road in Accra. It was preventable. A truck with a long trailer had been parked on the road for weeks, according to witnesses. There was no waring of any sort on a road that is notorously dark at night.
On Saturday night a tro-tro minibus ploughed straight into the trailler of the parked truck and three people died on the spot, according to witnesses I spoke to.
Today, the truck has been towed away. Could it not have been towed away all those weeks? And look at this: after towing away the truck and the wrecked bus they left this dangerous debris on the road. Tonight a motorcyclist or even a small vehicle will run onto the stone and glass; disaster will ensue then it will be swept away. That is how things are done here.
