A family that was wiped out in a tragic accident after a jubilating lottery winner run over them will be laid to rest on August 8, 2020.

Five members of the family, including a two-year-old, met their untimely death on July 1, when Wisdom Kpodo drove into their home while celebrating his win.

Wisdom, who could not hide his joy after winning the GH¢1, 200 lottery hopped into a taxi with registration number GT 4482 U, about 4:00 pm, with two of his friends and drove recklessly, thereby, killing the family in the process.

The deceased are Faustina Afi  Amegashie, 70; Regina Edzia, 41; and Rebecca Agbanavor, 17 years.

The rest are Etornam Agbanavor, nine, and Charity Agbanavor Exornam, two years.

Those who died instantly were Regina Edzia and her three children, while the other person was pronounced dead on arrival at the Keta Government Hospital.

The incident happened at Tegbi Vakpomda in the Anlo District of the Volta Region.

Assembly Member for Tegbi Afedome Electoral Area, Noel Kokoroko said Wisdom moved the taxi from Woe near Tegbi, to Keta at top speed with others shouting “no size, no size”.

On his return to Woe, and on reaching Vakpomda, the eyewitness said the driver attempted to overtake three vehicles in a row.

In  the process lost control of the steering and veered into a house, which was 40 metres away from the road, ending the lives of the five persons.
