Although road accidents are a daily occurrence in Ghana, the country’s football clubs have an admirable safety record. It is rare for football clubs to be involved in road accident in Ghana.
The last time a football club was involved in an accident was in July 2017, when Kumasi Asante Kotoko was hit with a tragedy after their team bus was involved in an accident while returning from a football game.
The club’s bus collided with a truck near Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region.
The accident led to the death of Kotoko’s Equipment Officer, Thomas Kofi Obeng Asare, left the driver of the Kumasi-based club in a coma and with several others sustaining various degrees of injury.
The team had lost their Ghana Premier League game to Inter Allies in Tema, a loss that had placed the club fourth on the league log with 35 points after 22 games.
The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kutz Okraku, took to Facebook to thank God for saving the club from a possible carnage.
