A moving car lost control crushing into an electric pole and injuring at least three persons in the process. A man in his late thirties who was driving an unregistered salon car, lost control causing a near-fatal accident at Ashaiman Lebanon zone 2 close to the EC prepaid retail point.
This unfortunate incident occurred around 12 midnight on Monday [26/06/2017] on the Lebanon road.
The accident caused a huge traffic jam in the area.
According to eye witnesses, the salon car driver who was from Ashaiman newtown heading towards zenu, attempted to swerve a tricycle (motor king) which was moving in opposite direction. He failed, running through a woman selling indomie by the road side and breaking an electric pole in the process.
The tricycle also crushed into another electric pole breaking it.
Fortunately the driver of the car, the tricycle rider and the indomie seller, all escaped death by the ‘skin of the teeth’.
However, one of workers of the woman, a young man who was waiting patiently for his indomie and the wife of the driver of the salon car, sustained various degrees of injury.
They were rushed to the hospital for medical attention.
Police officers were at the scene to control the situation and conduct investigation.
