The accident occurred Sunday, September 12 afternoon around 1:00 PM after the driver failed brakes.

According to eyewitnesses, the driver who was heading towards Assin Praso from Elmina upon reaching the Moree tollbooth veered off the road and run over the street hawkers and a physically challenged toll booth operator leaving both legs of a breastfeeding hawker broken into pieces.

They said, the driver tried to reduce the speed of the truck by resorting to low gears but it failed due to the heavy load the truck was carrying and in the process collided with two cars.
