Meanwhile, the Police have towed all the affected vehicles to the Nima Police station in Accra.

According to the Nima Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Abraham Acquaye, the driver of the Benin-registered truck who had come to the area to offload beans, lost control of the truck before running into the 12 vehicles.
