According to a guy who goes by the name Mr. Atta, claims that the drivers and passengers of a Range Rover that collided with another at a stoplight outside the Accra headquarters of the Lands Commission were intoxicated are untrue.
The guy said that the alcohol scent that was reported coming from his automobile was really coming from a broken bottle of alcohol during a phone conversation to disprove the assertions that had been circulated by certain Twitter users.
He clarified that they had attended a party with his wife and her sister and were on their way back to their house when the tragedy occurred.
My wife, my wife’s sister, and my wife’s sister’s friend joined us on our Friday night outing. After the programme, we returned home to drop off the friend of my wife’s sister’s at 37 so that she could pick up a car and go to her residence. After the programme, the drink they gave us from the programme was hard liquor, and we don’t drink hard liquor, so what we did was that we took it, that we’d take it home since we paid for it, but if someone comes and asks that they want it, we can give it to them.
The automobile in front of us was driving in the same direction as us when we arrived at the El-Wak Traffic Light on the way back. As for the white Range Rover, I was the one driving it. Before we knew what was happening, a car from the post office or the Lands area struck the side of the car that was on my side, causing our car to start spinning uncontrollably.
We were just praying when all the airbags deployed, and as we were about to strike the pavement, the vehicle suddenly stopped. It impacted the pavement and halted, which is why the passenger side also sustained damage, he said.
Mr. Atta followed his account by stating that after getting out of the car, he received advice from some other drivers that they should all get to the hospital right away to be examined.
They all went through the necessary procedures at the hospital, he claimed, and then boarded an ambulance to be sent to Kokomlemle for a scan before returning to the facility.
Then he argued that if they had been intoxicated, it wouldn’t have smelled as bad as it had been described, proving the assertions that they were not sober.
We didn’t consume the booze that was provided to us. It was in the car because we were transporting it home, and when the automobile was involved in an accident, it was thrown into the vehicle. As a result, if you remember, there was a reported alcohol scent in the car. However, he said, “If someone is drunk, you do not smell it the way it is in the car. This indicates that something was burst in the automobile.
The medical officer in charge of the case was contacted to attempt to confirm Mr. Atta’s story, but he told our reporter that he was unable to provide any information about his patient.
