Ambulance transporting patient involved in accident

A speeding ambulance transporting a patient from Fanteakwa South District to the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua for emergency healthcare has crashed.

The accident occurred due to the presence of cattle at a curve on the Akyem Osiem to Old Tafo main road.

It occurred at about 8:20 pm on Thursday, March 16, 2023.

Another ambulance from Fanteakwa North was dispatched to pick up the patient and paramedics aboard the accident ambulance vehicle to the regional hospital.

The paramedics were treated and discharged after a few hours.

However, the patient was admitted to the hospital due to the critical injuries sustained.

The Eastern Regional Manager of the Ghana National Ambulance Service, Michael Gaani, confirmed the accident to the media.

He expressed worry that stray animals in communities continue to threaten the operation of the service in parts of the region with a call on the assemblies to enforce their by-laws.

Meanwhile, on October 20 2022, an ambulance from the Sefwi Bodi District knocked a 40-year-old man in the Sefwi Wiawso Municipality.

The ambulance, with the registration number GV 21-20, was travelling from the Sefwi Bekwai direction to Sefwi Bodi in the Western Region.

Kwasi Asiamah, the victim, was crossing the road in the opposite direction at the same moment.

The ambulance knocked him down, killing him on the spot.

One of the eyewitnesses who narrated the incident to the media said, “we heard the ambulance’s sirene blurring.”

“We later heard a loud bang, and we ran out to see what happened. At the scene, we found that his head had been smashed,” the lady narrated.

The body was deposited at the Wiawso Government Hospital morgue by the Sefwi Wiawso Police Command.
