A 38-year-old woman has been crushed to death at Obretema, a suburb of Suhum in the Eastern region.
The deceased, Doris Dzifa, was standing at the roadside waiting to board a vehicle when a speeding car knocked her down.
Her body was dismembered into two at her waist level.
Doris was said to be living in Koforidua until a year ago when she got married and moved to Suhum with her husband, a barber.
The vehicle driver, Michael Kotei, 36, was driving a Honda accord private car with trade plate number DV 2115C-2021 with three persons on board from Accra to Kumasi when the incident happened.
He is said to have veered off the road, knocking down the female pedestrian standing by the road.
Together with other occupants, the driver sustained injuries and was rushed to the Suhum Government Hospital for treatment.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at the same hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.
