According to the Police, “emergency crews, including Ghana National Fire Service Extrication Team, National Ambulance Service EMTs, and Road Safety Management Service Limited are proceeding” to the site to assist the victims.

Drivers who ply the route have been redirected to alternative roads on the advice of the MMTD.
