The crash caused massive panic among passengers at Accra airport.
An Ethiopian Airlines cargo aircraft overshot the runway at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, on Saturday afternoon. The three-member crew on board are currently receiving treatment at a local military hospital.
A source within the tower-control room who confirmed the incident to StarrFMonline said the situation rarely happens in Ghana.
The cargo flight was supposed to fly from Togo to Ghana. Details emerging indicate that the accident was caused by bad weather.
The dry season, otherwise known as the Harmattan, has forced domestic operators to delay, and in some instances cancel, flights from Accra to Kumasi and Tamale due to poor visibility.
The dry season, which is associated with dry winds and poor visibility between the months of November to February, has reduced visibility for air navigation by some 60 percent.
Ethiopian Airlines mission statement reads: Ethiopian cargo will be the most competitive and leading African cargo air line by providing safe, market driven and customer focused cargo, courier and mail transport services by 2025.
