A major fuel spill on the Accra-Tema Motorway caused a chaotic scene as citizens rushed to collect diesel from the overturned tanker.
The fuel tanker with registration number GE 4130-20 toppled over near the toll booth, spilling its content all over the road.
Despite the potential hazards, people threw caution to the wind, collecting fuel in various containers such as buckets and gallons.
This act held up traffic, creating a ripple effect across the approximately 19-kilometre highway.
The dangerous behavior of the residents has raised many concerns as fuel-fire disasters have occurred in Ghana and other countries, claiming the lives of fuel-scooping victims.
It appears many Ghanaians easily forget the massive damage these spillages often cause if there is an explosion.
