In just 2020 alone between January and October there were nearly 12,100 reported road accident in Ghana caused by more than 20,400 vehicles and these accidents led to 2,080 deaths and 12,380 injuries.
And also in 2018, more 13,000 reported cases of road accidents were recorded in the country, with about 15,000 casualties including recorded death cases.
