He said the woman was locking the kiosk after work around 11.30 pm that day when the taxi, from nowhere, ran into the kiosk.

He, however, indicated that there was total blackout when the incident happened.

Confirming the incident, the Agona District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Francis Akwasi Asante said the KIA Rio taxi with registration number AW 2389-12, with four passengers on board, was from Kyekyewere heading towards Kumasi.

He said the driver, Alex Tetteh, 30, however, lost control when he reached the Apaa township and ran into the kiosk, where Adoma was standing.
