In a bizarre incident at Kaneshie-Accra, three persons sustained serious injuries when a taxi they were riding in suddenly exploded.
The taxi with registration number GW 8362-20 burst into flames at North Kaneshie Last Stop forcing a mad scramble. In the process, about three occupants of the vehicle sustained serious injuries and were rushed to the hospital, Whatsup News gathered.
The incident reportedly occurred on Monday evening while the taxi in question was commuting passengers.
Eyewitnesses say they heard a loud sound from the vehicle just when it was about to go over a speed rump on the stretch.
The device, suspected to be a fire extinguisher in the car, exploded, causing the car to somersault and go up in flames.
The driver sustained injuries on his neck and lips, while a young girl in the taxi had a deep cut on her hand and bled profusely. The third person to be injured was a pedestrian.
The injured are reportedly responding to treatment.
