A middle-aged woman has lost her life after she was hit by a water tanker vehicle on the Obom-Amasaman stretch in the Central Region.
The woman, 39-year-old Magasuba Mariam, who was sitting on a motorbike, died instantly after the crash.
The Deputy Central East Police Commander, ACP Oduro Amaning, who spoke to Citi News expressed worry over the level of indiscipline on the Obom-Amasaman stretch.
He indicated that the driver of the water tanker reported himself to the police after the incident.
According to him, that was a smart move by the driver.
ACP Oduro Amaning also urged travelers to wear their crash helmets when riding on a motorbike to minimize the impact on them incase of an accident.
“They know it is an offense to sit on a motorbike without wearing a helmet. So with this, we are cautioning them that they should wear their crash helmet so that in case of an accident, they will be safe.”
“At the scene, people were saying that the driver has absconded, but I’m asking them to take their time because when we got to the police station, the driver had reported himself to the police because he himself looking at the scene and the crowd at that place, it was not safe for him to have stayed there. So he was smart to know that the police station was the safest place for him.”
