Okada rider battling for his life after colliding with taxi
A commercial motor rider, identified simply as Nana Yaw,
is battling for his life at the Nsawam Government Hospital
after colliding with a taxi at Maame Dede junction
on the Naswam-Adeiso stretch.
The rider, believed to be in his mid-twenties, is said to have
made an unusual turn upon getting to an intersection of the road,
oblivious of the incoming speeding Hyundai Matiz taxi.
The taxi driver narrated to Adom News’ Asante Krobea that
the okada rider stopped abruptly, as he was having a conversation
with someone at the station while making a U-turn.
The driver, transporting four passengers, added that he made
attempts to swerve the motor, but all efforts to save the rider proved futile.
The ‘okada’ rider rammed into the front passenger side of the
taxi with registration number GG 2512-18, dislodging his rim
and other parts of the motorbike in the process.
