were traveling from Mankessim to Kaneshie but their driver

parked to change a flat tire near the scene.

“The military vehicle was traveling towards Winneba on top speed and

honking so most of the cars had to make way for it but unfortunately,

it hit the back of the Toyota which was in front of it.

“The driver lost control and hit a high tension electricity pole during

which the door came off and his mate fell and finally crashed

into a storey-building,” he narrated.

Mr. Adamu further revealed the military vehicle fled the scene without

any attention to the victims.

Another eyewitness, James Allotey, who works at a nearby block factory

said some of the workers could have lost their lives in the ghastly incident.

Meanwhile, the victims have been rushed to the Winneba Trauma

and Specialist Hospital for treatment.
