Eyewitnesses told Volta Online that, the driver of the Lexus was attempting to avoid an object in his lane but lost control, swerving into oncoming traffic and crashing into the passenger tricycle, a motorbike and a stationery tipper truck, resulting in the instant death of two occupants of the tricycle- a woman and a man.

Both the riders of tricycle and the motorbike were later pronounced dead at the St. Paul hospital in Akatsi, where they were rushed by the emergency response team.
