She was immediately knocked down onto the highway where she was struck by another vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries.


Both drivers who hit Madam Tagoe remained at the scene so that they could cooperate with the police.

The investigation into the circumstances of the collision remains ongoing.
