Assakae (WR), Oct. 9, GNA – Five persons
including two children have died, due the impatience of a taxi driver in charge
of an Opel vectra with registration number WR 4957-12, in an accident at
Assakae in the Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipality of the Western Region.

DSP Olivia Adiku, the Western Regional Public
Relations Officer, told the Ghana News Agency that about 1230 hours on last
Saturday October  6, a Tipper truck
driver with registration number GE 8305-Z which was heading towards Elubo from
Aboadze took the new bypass linking Nkroful Junction to Apollo and Apremdo.

She said on reaching Assakae junction, the
taxi driver carrying three adults and two children from Kwesimintim and
believed to be going to Assakae ignored the speed of the Tipper truck and
wilfully decided to cross and in the process had a head-on collision with it.

DSP Adiku said all five passengers sustained
various degrees of injuries and were transported to Jemima and Kwesimintsim
Hospitals initially.

Whilst on admission, four passengers and the
driver died, with the only survivor receiving medical care at the Effia Nkwanta
Regional Hospital.

Meanwhile, the driver of the Tipper Truck is
currently in police custody awaiting further action.
