An eyewitness said the woman was locking the kiosk after work around 11.30 pm that day when the taxi, from nowhere, ran into the kiosk.
An eye witness, Mr Victor Kwadwo Owusu, told the Mirror that the deceased had been assisting her daughter, Cynthia Adoma in selling her provisions.
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.
He said the victim, Adoma, was rushed to the Asamang SDA Hospital but was referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).
She was, however, pronounced dead on arrival at KATH.
Her remains have since been deposited at the mortuary of the Pope John Paul Hospital at Jamasi pending autopsy.
As at the time of filing this report, the driver had been remanded in custody by the Agona Magistrate Court.
