The driver whose car was hit by the Member of Parliament for Nanton, Mohammed Hardi Tuferu on Friday says his vehicle has been spoilt beyond repair.
He said the MP who was speeding at the time ran into his car at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) road, from the Absa clubhouse.
He made this known in an interview with Citi FM on Monday, April 3, when narrated his ordeal.
According to him, he had close from work and was heading home when the unfortunate incident happened.
“I work in Accra. I had closed from work and was on my way home. I normally use the GIJ route towards the Flagstaff house. Around 9:00 pm that faithful evening, I was on my way home as usual. When I got to the Absa clubhouse junction which is a T-junction.
The MP was coming from the SDA church [side], and I was making a left turn to join the Independence Avenue road. Before I realised it, the MP’s car ran into mine. He hit my passenger side. Witnesses can testify that the MP was speeding.”
He added that he went unconscious after the incident and only regained same until he heard some voices from the eyewitnesses.
“I was a bit unconscious for a while. I struggled before I was able to come out. Within a few minutes, I heard voices, that was how I regained consciousness.
By the time I was up, I was told he had been rushed out of the scene. A police officer, who said he was from Parliament later came and gave me the MP’s number and said I could call. After that, a couple took me to the hospital,” he added.
The victim says he had not managed to escape, he would have been trapped in the car.
“My car is beyond repair. The impact was great. I do not know what he was speeding for. I believe it is God that saved me. If not that I managed to open my door, I would have been trapped in the car.”
MP for Nanton, Mohammed Hardi Tuferu was involved in an accident on his way to take part in a vote on the new tax bills laid before Parliament on Friday, March 31.
He is said to have suffered a deep cut on his forehead but was still taken to Parliament to vote before he was taken to hospital for further treatment.
