A commercial motor rider, identified simply as Nana Yaw, is battling for his life at the Nsawam Government Hospital after colliding with a taxi at Maame Dede junction on the Naswam-Adeiso stretch.

The rider, believed to be in his mid-twenties, is said to have made an unusual turn upon getting to an intersection of the road, oblivious of the incoming speeding Hyundai Matiz taxi.

The taxi driver narrated to Adom News’ Asante Krobea that the okada rider stopped abruptly, as he was having a conversation with someone at the station while making a U-turn.

The driver, transporting four passengers, added that he made attempts to swerve the motor, but all efforts to save the rider proved futile.
