In what could have been a serious accident resulting in injuries and casualties, a Tractor driver averted the situation by saving commuters and pedestrians when he veered off into a nearby gutter in Agogo New Town, a suburb in Asante Akyem North District.
The driver in a bid to avoid running into other Pragia and pedestrians was able to control the Tractor into a nearby gutter.
According to eyewitnesses who spoke to Adanse3 fm, the driver did well in the heat of the moment and was able to avoid a much more grievous situation.
Reports indicated that several vehicles had suffered severe damages after they fell into the big gutter.
People in the area said the culvert covering the gutter got damaged some years ago but no action had been taken.
According to them, drivers who don’t often ply that particular route always fall into the gutter unexpectedly.
The people blamed the District Assembly for looking unconcerned as the death trap continues to cause havoc.
