Just by lunchtime at 12: 15pm on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, at McCarthy Hill, near Mallam Junction, Accra, an innocent pillion on a motor bike met his untimely death.

The victim, Victor Tetteh, on bike number M-12-GR 751, was killed instantly when his rider in a mad haste to get to his destination wrongly?? moved into the inner lane to gain advantage.

An eye witness had it that, unfortunately, a blue private Saloon car ahead of him swerved to the right and made away for him.

Without exercising due care, he noted, the rider rode straight into an empty articulated truck and the pillion rider, without a crash helmet dropped from his mount and was crushed by the rear tyres of the truck of his head to smithereens.

He indicated that, as the horror accident engaged the keen attention of by standers, both the articulated truck driver and the motor bike rider had the cue to escape questions and at last arrest as well.

Incidentally, he stated the victim appeared as either a motor mechanic or an electrician as he carried working tools, vehicle documents, a driver?s license and an amount of GH?170.00.

Eventually, Ghana Fire Service personnel from Weija, as well and police from the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU), Odorkor, Accra arrived? at the scene to control traffic, keep curious spectators from tempering with vital evidence, and also to check whether there were dangerous items which could cause fire out-break or be hazardous to human life.

Wwhen all had been accomplished satisfactorily; the body was conveyed to the 37 military Hospitals for the relevant involved medical investigations. And so ended the bright prospects of Victor Tetteh?s life.
