Eyewitness, Ebenezer Quaye explains the driver of the vehicle lost control after a tyre burst.

“I saw the car speeding and overtaking others. He overtook one car but lost control and the car somersaulted”, he explains.

Family of the victims gathered at the Ejisu Government Hospital to register their displeasure with the care received by the victims.

They say it took more than thirty minutes for a Doctor to show up after victims were rushed to the Hospital.

Clement Antwi explains, “when I got here with one of my siblings, the victims were admitted but there was no Doctor. They later brought the lady out and the ambulance took her away. Later, I asked them what was happening but no one explained anything to us. We later realized there was no Doctor at the Hospital. It took about thirty minutes for one to arrive”.

It took the police to ensure families were dispersed.
