Fuel tanker overturns at Achimota as driver avoids hitting saloon car

A fuel tanker with registration number, GW-6278-W, overturned at Achimota Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred after a saloon car crossed the tanker, which was heading to Tema from Kade in the Eastern Region.

“My driver opted to climb onto the pavement in order to save lives,” the tanker driver’s mate, Jones Kanor, told Atinka TV’s reporter, Ebenezer Maedugu.

It took the quick response from the Tesano Divisional Motor Traffic and Transport Department, the Fire Service and Road Safety Personnel to calm the situation.
