Two persons, the MCE for Bibiani-Anwhwiaso and his driver have died in a motor accident at Akyim Fisher on the Accra Kumasi highway in the Eastern Region.
Police report says the MCE of the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Municipality Alfred Amoah was on board the assembly’s Nisan Patrol 4×4 GC2060-18 travelling from Accra towards Bibiani direction.
On reaching a section of the road at Akyim Fisher on the Accra-Kumasi Highway, a Man Diesel Articulated truck No. AS 4229-X from Kumasi direction veered off its lane and crashed head-on with the Nissan Patrol 4×4.
The MCE and his driver got trapped in the vehicle and both died on the spot.
With the help of the National Fire Service from Bunso and Kyebi, the bodies of the deceased were removed and sent to Kyebi Government Hospital where they were confirmed by the Medical Officer on duty.
Their bodies were deposited at the mortuary for preservation, identification and autopsy.
A Man Diesel Fuel tanker No. GN 8540-20 driven by Habibu Adam aged 35 years with an empty tank from Kumasi direction on seeing the danger ahead applied his brakes to avoid a crash. In the process, he lost control of the steering wheel, veered off its lane and landed into a ditch on the offside facing Accra direction.
Efforts are being made by the police to tow the accident vehicles from the scene and effect the arrest of the Articulator truck driver who is currently at large.
