The incident involved a DAF truck with registration number GN-1905-16, which was transporting diesel from Kpone to Accra.
The truck fell on its roof at the TT brothers intersection.
Divisional Officer (DO III) Ebenezer Yenzu, the Tema Regional Public Relations Officer for the GNFS, reported that the rescue team, led by ADO II Badu Essel, spent approximately one hour and twenty minutes managing the spilt diesel fuel.
The team supervised the transfer of the remaining fuel into a new truck.
Yenzu mentioned that the truck sustained partial damage to the storage tank and total damage to the roof of the head cabin during the accident.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known.
Two injured persons from the truck were transported to the Tema General Hospital for treatment.
The damaged truck was successfully towed from the scene to prevent any further hazards or accidents.
The prompt response and effective management of the spilt fuel by the GNFS helped mitigate potential risks and environmental damage resulting from the overturned diesel truck.
