Michael Nkrumah who was the eyewitness spoke to Joy News.

“I was in the bush easing myself when I heard the noise of the tyre, so I rushed to the street and when I got here, the driver has lost control of the vehicle. He was moving left and right before I realised he has entered the bush and I rushed and followed the truck so I climbed the truck and brought out the three people in the truck. So right now, they are all okay,” he narrated.
