Residents in Madina and Adentan have told the media that about 195 people have been killed by motorists but the police say the figures are inaccurate.

"We have recorded about 24 deaths and 164 injuries between January and 31st October on that stretch,” DSP Alex Obeng, head of research of the MTTD said on Accra-based Starr FM.

The clarification comes following the death of an 18-year-old lady on Thursday when she attempted to cross the highway.

The rampant deaths on the highway have been attributed to the lack of footbridges to make pedestrian crossing easy.

In a statement Friday, President Akufo-Addo has expressed his condolences to the family of the deceased.

The President also described the death as an unnecessary loss that could have been averted.
