Residents and drivers along the Accra-Tema motorway on Friday morning risked their lives to fetch fuel which was gushing out of a crashed tanker.
The accident reportedly occurred few meters before the toll booth at the Accra end spilling fuel onto the highway.
The said fuel tanker , which belongs to Dukes Petroleum, was transporting diesel from Tema towards Accra and slide off the road in an attempt to swerve a saloon car.
The amount of fuel that spilled to the road made it slippery which then caused both motorists and vehicles traffic on the road.
Some vehicle drivers couldn’t help watch fuel freely spilled to the ground and go waste so they had to get down and fetch some for their vehicles.
When those drivers fetching the fuel were confronted by some media personnel with questions one replied “Times are hard and we couldn’t just watch on so I had to fetch the fuel for my car,” a driver happily said.
