According to the Regional Police spokesperson, DSP Irene Oppong "The Regional police command is confirming that there was a shooting incident at Moree Tollbooth involving a policeman who shot at a private car on Sunday 18th November 2018."

DSP Oppong added, however, a lady in the car "got injured by a fragment from a broken windscreen."

An eyewitness told Accra-based Citi FM that the driver of the private car who failed to pay the road toll did not do so intentionally.

He said that the driver who was travelling from Cape Coast to Accra, received an emergency call from his boss at work when he got to the Moree tollbooth. In answering the call he forgot to pat the 50 pesewas toll.

In a bid to stop the driver, the Police Constable fired at the saloon car injuring one woman in the process.
