The Juapong Circuit Court has sentenced Abel Dzidotor, a 41-year-old truck driver, to six months in jail after he admitted guilt to three charges.

Presided over by His Honour Prosper Deu-Love Gormashie, the court considered Dzidotor’s marital status and guilty plea. Dzidotor’s sentencing follows an incident where he abandoned his Hyundai truck on the Tema-Mpakadan rail lines, resulting in a collision with a new Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) train during a site acceptance test.

Dzidotor faced charges of careless driving, unauthorized stopping, and causing unlawful damage, resulting in various penalties and a six-month imprisonment with hard labor. The court has adjourned the hearing on a fourth charge, failure to produce a driver’s license, to May 9th, 2024.
