A gas tanker Wednesday morning crashed on the Accra-Tema motorway stretch with gas leaking onto the street causing fear and panic among drivers and road users.
However, the quick response of the Ghana National Fire Service managed to prevent any possible disaster that could have happened after the tanker overturned.
