The driver of a Man Diesel truck has been burnt to death after an accident at Juaso in Asante Akim South of the Ashanti Region.

According to the Ghana National Fire Service(GNFS), the Ejisu Fire Station responded to a call to a twin accident and fire incident involving a truck with registration number GA 5246 – 10 carrying cashew nuts on Sunday, May 14, 2023.

After a quick assessment, the firemen found that the affected Man Diesel Truck was scattered at the scene due to the impact of the crash.

The driver, 36-year-old Sumaila Ibrahim was, however, found trapped in the head compartment of the truck and badly burnt.

Meanwhile, the driver’s mate, Mutala Yussif, 16 years, escaped unhurt after the crash.

According to the driver’s mate, a car wrongfully overtook their truck which forced the driver to veer off their lane and hit the pavement of the steel bridge.

“The truck somersaulted and landed on the shoulder of the road and in a nearby bush with scattered parts. Preliminary investigation showed that sufficient sparks from the trailer’s impact with the steel bridge caused the fire which gutted the rear of the trailer and set the 500 bags of cashew nuts in the trailer alight.

“The fire then spread quickly and unfortunately affected the head compartment to burn the deceased driver who was trapped in the fire,” a statement from the GNFS said.

The firefighters handed the badly charred body of the deceased to the Juaso Police for preservation and further investigation.
