Heavily loaded cargo truck topples on Tema motorway

A cargo truck headed to the Accra Central Business district from Tema has toppled on the Tema motorway, few meters away from the Toyota Ghana head office, causing an obstruction to traffic flow.

According to the driver of the cargo truck, the accident happened after a Volkswagen saloon car tried to switch into his lane.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with GhanaWeb, the driver of the cargo truck said in an attempt to avert the situation he rather ended up smashing into the Volkswagen Bora.

The truck was heavily loaded with bags of rice, with just the driver while the saloon car with registration number GE2000V had two occupants including the driver.

All persons escaped unscathed.

The accident created a bit of traffic on the highway, causing Police officers to control vehicles plying that stretch to ease the jam.

The occupants of the saloon car refused to comment when the team reached out to them.
