3 people die in an accident on Kumasi-Accra Highway

Three persons aboard a Covid-19 registered vehicle belonging to Ghana Health Service died in a fatal crash Monday morning at the Teacher Mante stretch of the Accra to Kumasi highway.

The driver, a woman, and a child died on the spot while two others in critical condition were rushed to the hospital.

The crash involved a Toyota Hilux with registration number GS 1629-20 and a GHS vehicle with registration number Covid 97-20.

According to the eyewitnesses, the Covid 97-20 registered pickup vehicle and a Toyota Hilux vehicle was speeding toward Suhum’s direction on the double lane of the highway.

However, upon reaching Teacher Mante, a tricycle rider reportedly crossed the Toyota Hilux without observing traffic.

An attempt by the driver of the Toyota Hilux to avoid crashing the tricycle forced him to suddenly join the outer lane and violently hit the rear side of the Covid 97-20 registered vehicle.

The impact forced the driver of the Covid 97-20 registered vehicle to lose control of the steering wheel, veered off the road, and crashed into a stationary trailer truck at the bus stop killing three occupants on the spot.

The two other occupants including a man believed to be a health officer were in critical condition and hence rushed to the hospital by Police.

Occupants of the Toyota Hilux sustained minor injuries.
