Six out of 15 persons have been killed in a horrific motor accident on the Kumasi-Yeji Highway, Sunday.
The six persons include two women and four men. Nine others are receiving treatment at the hospital.
The accident occurred at Kobre in the Pru East District at about 3:30pm —when a vehicle with registration number AS 3976-18, veered off the road after it bursts its tyres.
Driver of the vehicle Kingsley Aduboffour is said to be in a critical condition.
He was being prepared for surgery at the Mathias Catholic Hospital at Yeji in the Bono East Region.
Correspondent Bernard Twum-Barimah said emergency services were called to the scene to convey the victims to the hospital.
“So the information is that two out of the nine other persons have been referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and the others are receiving treatment at the Mathias Catholic Hospital”, reported Twum-Barimah.
The remains of the deceased have been deposited at the Mathias Catholic Hospital morgue for preservation.
The mangled vehicle has since been towed from the accident scene.
Police in the Bono East Region are expected to give further details about the development.
