A gory accident at the Achimota intersection of the N1 Friday dawn left in its wake a badly mangled Honda Civic saloon car, and the body of a young lady.
Eyewitnesses say the speeding saloon car, on approaching the N1 flyover failed to stop.
A heavy truck with registration GN 9501-16, travelling on the main Abeka Lapaz to Tetteh Quarshie Roundabout road was also speeding on the outer lane of the motorway.
According to the eyewitness, the driver of the Honda Civic car, with registration GN 5001 – 15 – a lady in her late 20s – had tried to apply the brakes when she realised she had gotten too close to the heavy back tires of the tipper-truck approaching her, but it was too late.
The saloon car was run over by the heavy track from the driver’s side, smashing and killing the lady instantly.
One of the eyewitness, Nii Kotei, said the truck driver stopped after hearing the sound of shattering glass and bending metal filled the early dawn air.
However, after grasping what had happened, he tried to flee the scene but was chased by another driver and forced to stop.
The truck driver has since been detained at the Tesano Police Station.
The body of the unidentified lady was trapped in the mangled car when personnel of the Ghana Fire Service arrived at the scene.
Police searched the vehicle for a long time
