There was chaos on the Madina-Adentan stretch of road Thursday after a student of West Africa Senior Secondary was run-over and killed by a moving vehicle.
Angry residents stormed out of their houses onto the busy killer street in protest over the new fatality.
In less than a year, close to 200 people have reportedly died on the 7 kilometers stretch of road which serves as a transit to people traveling to Aburi and other parts of the Eastern Region.
That stretch has no street lights in sections of the road making the highway dark and difficult to use especially in the evening.
The six-lane road has no footbridges. The six footbridges which were part of the road project have all been abandoned leaving residents with no choice but to cross the busy road by themselves.
In their attempt to cross, 194 people have so far lost their lives with a dozen others left completely maimed according to a youtube video that is circulating.
There have been several radio campaigns, agitations by residents drawing the attention of the government to fix the problems on the road but nothing was done about it except promises.
On Thursday a student of WASS who had closed from school and was on her way home was hit by a vehicle killing her instantly.
The angry residents in protest set fire to tires in the middle of the road making it difficult for vehicles to use the road.
With traffic building up and in the middle of the chaos, the police were called in to restore law and order but the situation degenerated.
Some policemen in their attempt to fire warning shots to disperse the crowd fired into a car with the bullet hitting a kid.
The kid was rushed to the hospital and is responding to treatment. It took hours for the situation to be brought under control.
Videos of the event have been shared on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and gaining massive views since it occurred.
