Three persons have been crushed at Asabaham on the Kasoa – Amasaman road in the Ga South Municipality.
The trio, all males, believed to be in their 20s, died on the spot after a private car with registration number GN 2044- 17 ran over them.
A witness, Gabriel Ahakye, told Adom News the vehicle was travelling from Kasoa towards Ashalaja but unfortunately hit the victims who were crossing the road to the opposite direction.
The speeding driver attempted to flee the scene after the incident in the wee hours of Monday but was accosted by irate residents.
Residents, who have bemoaned the incessant accidents on the stretch, took to the street to demand the construction of speed ramps.
They have since given the Ga South Municipal Assembly and Ghana Highways Authority one week ultimatum to construct speed ramps to help safe lives.
They have threatened to mount roadblocks on the Kasoa-Amasaman main road if their pleas are not adhered to.
