A trailer was moving from the Ring road, heading towards the Obetsebi roundabout, when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

The 40-foot trailer fell off the over pass with the head coming down first then the cargo, leaving the other cargo hanging over the disrupted rail of the overpass containing bags of sugar.



Two commercial vehicles without passengers suffered from the fall of the trailer. There was no casualty recorded from the frightful accident.

The police and some fire officials were present to restore order and sanity at the scene. The cargos which were loaded with sugar have been secured  to be moved  from the road to ease the movement of other vehicles and pedestrians.

The police said the driver with his counterpart survived the crash but  were no where to be found afterwards.
