Three hundred and eighty (380) people were killed in 1,390 road crashes in the Ashanti Region last year.

Chief Superintendent Peter Gyimah, Regional Commander of the Police Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU), who announced this, said 1,495 others were injured, some seriously.

He said a total of 1,988 vehicles, including commercial, private and motor bikes were involved in the crashes.

He told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that they would do everything to enforce road traffic regulations to restore some level of discipline and assured motorists and pedestrians of their safety.

Careless driving and neglect of maintenance would have to end, the MTTU Commander said and called for public cooperation and understanding as they step up efforts to promote road safety.
