Fuel Tanker Overturns at Weija As Drivers and Passengers Scamper For Safety


A fuel tanker has fallen on the main Kasoa Highway near Weija, spilling all the contents on the tarred road. We are so grateful to God Almighty that the accident this time around was not a fatal one.

Until now, no casualty has been recorded except the tanker driver who sustained severe injuries.

All the drivers and passengers who were using the road since the time of the accident have run for their dear lives as they feared [possibly] ensuing explosions.

According to Citi News reports, the road which is a major and busy highway is temporarily blocked as a result of the incident. This has eventually caused a heavy traffic and all road users are forced to cross the blockade on foot for the moment.

The decision to block these roads means no vehicle can move from Malam junction towards Accra and vice versa in the next one or two hours.”

Fire fighters are also currently at the scene to clear off the mess as well as forestall any possible danger.
