An articulated truck with registration number GT 8387 X said to be carrying gallons of engine oil has skidded off the Kwame Nkrumah circle fly overpass.
The accident occurred on Friday June 11 at about 9PM.
Andrew, an eye witness, told TV3 that the brakes of the truck failed, forcing the vehicle to recess.
According to the eyewitness, the truck started reversing midway into its journey when the driver tried using the flyover from the old Obra Spot towards the Awudome stretch.
The driver, in an attempt to navigate the vehicle towards the rail, burst a rear tyre and lost control.
Police and Fire Service personnel were deployed to the scene to clear the truck off the road.
