Government spent over $1 million to evacuate 2,262 Ghanaians from Lebanon – Minister

Four children have been killed by a speeding driver at Egya No. 2, a suburb of Anomabo, a community along the Cape-Coast-Accra Highway.
One other child, according to eyewitnesses is in a critical condition at the Saltpond Hospital.

The children were on their way home from school on Tuesday afternoon when the accident occurred as they crossed the road.

The driver of the Hyundai 4×4 vehicle has been arrested and is currently in the Saltpond Police custody.

But residents of the area are incensed. In their anger, they blocked the Anomabo section of the Highway in protest of the killings as they claim the accident is the second in a week.

They claim that another driver knocked and killed seven people on the same stretch on Monday.

According to them, many requests for speed ramps to be constructed on that portion of the road have fallen on deaf ears.

Police, however, managed to clear the road for traffic to flow and the driver will be put before court today.
