An Adentan Circuit Court has fined two adolescent drivers GHC 7,200 for failing to use reasonable care when their cars collided, damaging another automobile. Both 19-year-olds Forson Prince Gyasi and Isaac Obeng Omari must pay GHC3,600 apiece, otherwise they will each be imprisoned for six months. The owner of the damaged vehicle, Bismark Larbi, must get GHC30,000 from each of them, according to the court’s ruling, which was presided over by Mrs. Sedinam Awo Balokah.
After the accused admitted admission to the accusations of reckless and imprudent driving and causing unlawful damage, this occurred. Chief Inspector Jacob Nyarko described the case’s facts, saying that on March 7 of this year at around 1:00 am, Gyasi and Omari were each operating a Honda Civic saloon with trade plate number DV384F-2022 and a Hyundai Avante saloon with trade plate number DV6811G-2022.
According to Chief Inspector Nyarko, the accused were traveling from Madina to Ayi-Mensah by car. The accused failed to show proper consideration for other road users when they arrived at a part of the road in Oyarifa Township next to a Police Snap Check Point, the prosecutor claims.
The prosecution said that as a result of Gyasi colliding with Omari’s vehicle, Omari lost control of the wheel and slammed into the rear of the Toyota Yaris private vehicle in front of him with the license plate GS 4471-18.
The Toyota Yaris, which was being driven at the time by Larbi Bismark, according to the prosecution, was also damaged. It stated that the damaged cars were towed to the Ayi-Mensah MTTD for more research.
