Residents of Bambolino around the Nii Boi Town area, near Abeka-Lapaz in the Greater Accra Region (GAR), woke up to a rude shock last Sunday August 31, 2014, to find a Nissan pick-up with registration number, GT 6434-13, parked in the hall of a two- bedroom Chamber and Hall building, endangering the life of the three occupants, who were asleep.
According to an eye witness’ report, the occupants of the slightly used Nissan-Nevara vehicle, who were heavily drunk, were believed to be returning from a party in the wee hours of the morning, driving on top speed.
The eye witness said, the occupants of the vehicle escaped unhurt because of the airbags in the Sports Utilities Vehicle (SUV), while three occupants in the room were badly hurt.
The eye witness told The Herald that the driver and the passengers, after carousing at a party were spotted racing on the George Walker Bush N1 Highway, when the Nissan pick-up veered off the road when the driver losing control of the steering wheel.
The driver between the wee hours of 1:30 AM lost control in front of the Abeka –Lapaz branch of Barclays Bank and hit the pavement, forcing the car to forcibly enter the building.
