An eyewitness, Ransford Tetteh, told Starr News’ Caleb Boye that a driver’s mate sustained serious injury in the head.

The accident resulted in a heavy gridlock on the Okponglo Tetteh Quarshie stretch of the Madina-Accra road and the police are working to restore order as the damaged vehicles were being towed away.
