Some residents of Asankran-Saa, a community near Asankrangwa in the Amenfi West Municipal, on Wednesday afternoon attempted to siphon fuel from a fuel tanker that had overturned regardless of the possible explosion.
People were seen running towards the tanker with their buckets in hand to fetch the fuel.
It was gathered that the tanker fell while ascending the Asankran-Saa town heading towards Kwabeng Petrosol filling station.
According to the Assistance Station Officer, Augustine Appiah of Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) in Asankrangwa, some residents actually succeeded in siphoning some of the fuel.
But the police came to the scene and dispersed the crowd, before they started a process to offload the fuel into another truck to avert any unfortunate incident.
