There was gridlock on the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange on Friday afternoon (24 May 2019) as an articulated truck tumbled in an attempt to cross the overpass.

The truck, with registration number GR 4258 N, was headed for Kaneshie from the Ring Road stretch but could not ascend the overpass.

An eyewitness reported that the driver lost control of the long vehicle which was ferrying raw materials for making baby diapers and sanitary pads.

It fell on its side after moving several meters in the reverse direction.

The driver escaped unhurt but the fallen truck blocked a section of the overpass, causing hours-long gridlock.

Personnel from the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) were deployed to the scene to bring the situation under control.

This is not the first time such an accident has been recorded at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange.

Three persons sustained severe injuries on 1 March 2017 when a container truck fell off the interchange.

They were treated at the hospital and later discharged.
