Five cars were crushed by timber logs at the Bogoso Market in the Western Region’s Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality on Saturday evening.
According to the police, one person has been confirmed dead with four others injured in the accident involving a Daf truck and five other vehicles.
The police said its investigation disclosed that the driver of the Daf truck, carrying logs from the Prestea end of the road, upon reaching Bogoso lost control while negotiating a curve with the logs falling on the five other vehicles.
“Personnel of the MTTD are on the grounds and the road has since been open to traffic.
The Ghana National Fire Service is assisting to rescue the victims believed to be trapped in the accident vehicles. Efforts are underway to get the driver of Daf truck, who is on the run, arrested to face justice,” the police statement said.
Augustus Osei, driver of one of the vehicles involved in the accident said the breaking system of the Daf truck failed, which resulted in the accident.
“I was coming from Boadie to Bogoso and we had bypassed the roundabout. The Daf truck had already climbed the hill but suddenly all we could see was the truck reversing by itself so I shouted for all my passengers to exit the vehicle.
“Three of us in the vehicle managed to exit but one person could not exit so he died,” he narrated.
