A cyclist was last Friday knocked down by a driver of a black Volvo on the highway leading to Ghana Technology University College in Tesano.

The cyclist sustained some injuries and was immediately taken to the hospital for medical attention.

This was after officers from the Motor Transport Traffic Directorate Unit (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service came to the scene to restore calm to the area.

According to an eyewitness, the driver knocked the cyclist off his bicycle after the cyclist crossed him during the morning rush hour.

In an attempt to avoid hitting the cyclist, the eyewitness said the driver swerved which caused his car to somersault.

Passersby helped the driver to place his car back on its four wheels, the eyewitness said.

Although the cyclist was initially presumed dead but later started moving and was rushed to the hospital.
