Source The Ghana Report

The driver of a tipper truck with registration GN 7842-21 died on the spot while his mates were in critical condition after the vehicle’s bucket hit the Kasoa Chrispo City overpass on the Kasoa-Winneba Highway in the Central Region.

According to an eyewitness, the driver had offloaded sand at Kasoa and, upon returning towards Buduburam, the bucket unexpectedly swung up, striking the overpass and all three occupants were thrown from the vehicle onto the road.

Tragically, the driver’s head was run over by the rear tyres, resulting in his instant death.

While the deceased was trapped under the car, some thieves at the scene stole money from his pockets.

This incident comes after two persons, including the driver of a KIA Granbird VIP bus with registration number GE 5099-15, were confirmed dead in a gory accident at Nobewam on the Konongo-Kumasi Highway.

Several others also suffered varying degrees of injuries in the accident, which occurred due to a wrongful overtaking.

The Konongo police revealed that the VIP bus was from Yeji and was heading towards Accra with passengers on board.

Upon reaching a section of the road at Nobewam, the driver reportedly overtook several vehicles ahead of him.

During the process, a vehicle emerged from the opposite direction, and the VIP driver decided to move back to his lane in an attempt to avoid collision.

Unfortunately, he ran into a MAN Diesel trailer with registration number GN 6933-11, driven by Abraham Ayama and with another occupant onboard.

The victims were rushed to Asante Akyem Central Municipal, Nobewam SDA and Hopecare Specialist hospitals for treatment.

The bus driver and one other person died after they got to the hospital.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the Stewards Hospital and Asante Akyem Central Municipal Hospital mortuary for preservation, identification and autopsy.
