9-Year-Old Boy Crashed To Death BySpeeding Tipper Truck

A 9-year-old Junior High School student has lost his life after he was hit by a speeding tipper truck at Akrampa Junction in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region.

According to eyewitnesses, the deceased was crossing the Akrampa section of the Accra Cape Coast highway with his younger brother around 9:00 am, when the speeding tipper truck with registration number GR 8763- 21, lost control and killed him in the process.

“The students were on their way to school from Akrampa this morning, and were attempting to cross the road when the Tipper truck knocked down one of them, but the other one was able to escape. The boy who died is believed to be around 9 years of age and was with his brother when the accident happened. The Police have come for the body of the deceased, and his brother was taken home".

The residents said speed ramps must be fixed on that stretch to prevent pedestrian knockdowns.

“Tipper truck drivers are always driving on top speed on this stretch, and they find it difficult to manoeuvre on this part of the road. I think that if nothing is done about it, like providing speed ramps or something, there will continue to be deaths here".

This adds to the numerous accidents that have occurred already this year, and taken many lives while leaving several others injured.
