CPA knocked down by a speeding bus

A Community Policing Assistant (CPA) at Teacher Mante in the Ayensuano District in Eastern Region has been knocked down by a speeding Bus.

The CPA was on a motorbike crossing Accra to Kumasi Highway when the Bus knocked him down.

He was rushed to Suhum government hospital for treatment and reported to be recuperating.

Pedestrian knockdowns are high on the Accra to Kumasi highway due to the lack of safe walking ways for residents in dozens of communities along the road.

On Thursday, May 27, 2021, the angry youth of Amanase, a community near Suhum blocked the Accra to Kumasi Highway amidst the burning of many tyres in a spontaneous protest after a vehicle crushed an elderly man to death in the evening.

The man was knocked down by a speedy vehicle at about 7:30pm while crossing the road. His body was shredded and littered on the road.

The blockage and the burning of the tyres on the road created gridlock for almost an hour until armed Police stormed the scene to disperse the youth amidst the firing of warning shots.

Residents have embarked on similar protests previously over the killing of many residents in the community owing to drivers’ failure to slow down on reaching the Community.
