A truck carrying scrap metal this afternoon was crashed by a train on the Graphic Road, starting a vehicular traffic on the busy road.
No injuries were recorded in the accident which happened at about 3:45pm.
The truck had developed a mechanical fault and was stuck on the train tracks at the level-crossing at the time of the accident.
The vehicle, an old Albion truck with registration number GR 3794 J had gone to the Odorna area to load the scrap metal.
The driver had attempted to join the main road at the level-crossing area when it developed the mechanical fault.
Sensing danger, he mobilised support to push the truck off the tracks but whilst they were at it, the train appeared and they abandoned the vehicle to run to safety.
The train crashed and pushed it off its way. The truck overturned on its side and poured the scrap metal on the road but the train moved on and continued its journey towards Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
The incident resulted in a vehicular traffic.
The police later appeared on the scene and towed the track off the road to allow traffic to flow.
No fatalities have been recorded yet and there are no reports of injuries.
