Five people died Wednesday morning in a motor accident close to the 37 military hospital.

The driver of the passenger car which was returning from Aflao heading towards the central business district of Accra is said to have lost control of his vehicle.

Some of the survivors said the driver was over speeding and so veered off the road and crashed into the huge trees along the road.

Several minutes after the accident, the victims had been abandoned by onlookers.

It took a GBC driver John Agbeko to take the injured and deceased to the 37 military hospital where there was only one stretcher to carry the victims at the time of filing the report.
