"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.
