The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Mr. Alfred Amoah and his driver, died in a ghastly road accident on Tuesday, July 12, 2022.
According to information available to GhanaWeb, the incident happened at Apedwa along the Accra-Kumasi Highway.
An eyewitness who spoke to GhanaWeb said the accident involved a trailer with a registration number AS 4229 X and the Toyota Landcruiser in which the MCE was travelling.
The trailer, coming from Kumasi to Accra is said to have lost control a few meters from the Birim river on the Accra-Kumasi highway after its axle broke in the middle of the road.
It subsequently crashed into the MCE’s car, with registration number GC 2060-18, crashing the engine and the driver’s part along with the seating area of the front passenger.
The MCE was reported to be on his way from back to Kumasi from Accra where he and other appointees had met with the President earlier in the day.
The deceased Alfred Amoah and his driver Samuel Gyasi, died instantly at the time of filing this report.
Their bodies were still trapped in the car but the Police and Fire Service were at the scene trying to restore vehicular order and to retrieve the remains.
The state-owned Daily Graphic’s account states that the accident, said to involve multiple vehicles, reportedly occurred at Apedwa near Tafo in the Eastern Region.
It also quoted the Western North Regional Minister, Richard Rocky Joojo Obeng as having confirmed the incident.
