Yaa Adoma had closed for the day and was locking the kiosk when the taxi ran into the kiosk

Taxi runs into kiosk, kills woman, 73
A seventy-three-year-old woman, Yaa Adoma, lost
her life last Sunday night when a taxi ran into a
kiosk at Apaa near Jamasi in the Sekyere South
District in the Ashanti Region.

Her remains have since been deposited at the
mortuary of the Pope John Paul Hospital at Jamasi
pending autopsy.

An eye witness, Mr Victor Kwadwo Owusu, told The
Mirror the late Adoma had been helping her
daughter, Cynthia Adoma, in selling provisions.

He said that fateful Sunday night, the entire Apaa
township was in a total blackout when the incident
happened.

Mr Owusu said the woman had closed for the day
around 11:30 p.m. and was locking the kiosk when
the taxi, from nowhere, ran into the kiosk.

The Agona District Police Commander, Assistant
Superintendent of Police (ASP) Francis Akwasi
Asante, confirmed the incident.

He said the KIA Rio taxi with registration number
AW 2389-12, with four passengers on board, was
from Kyekyewere heading towards Kumasi.

ASP Asante said upon reaching the Apaa township,
the driver, Alex Tetteh, 30, lost control and ran
into the kiosk, where Adoma was standing.

He said Adoma was rushed to the Asamang SDA
Hospital but was referred to the Komfo Anokye
Teaching Hospital (KATH).

ASP Asante said Adoma was, however, pronounced
dead on arrival at KATH.

The district police commander said the passengers
sustained minor injuries but had since not
reported to the police station.

At the time of filing this report, Tetteh, who
appeared before the Agona Magistrate Court,
presided over by Mrs Aliata Saeed, had been
remanded in custody.
