Gomoa Okyereko accident: 2 dead, others in critical condition

By January 20, 2019 1050 0

Two persons have been confirmed dead, while two others are in critical condition in an accident that occurred at Gomoa Okyereko junction on the Kasoa – Cape Coast Highway on Friday night.

The accident occurred when a Benz Truck  with registration number GE 1781 -Y, veered off its  lane  and collided  with a TATA Kia truck  with registration  number GN 993-11 heading towards Accra  from Winneba.

Two people died on the spot, while two are in critical condition, and have been admitted at the Winneba Trauma Hospital.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the deceased have since been deposited at the same hospital.

SO 1 Daniel Asare, the  Municipal Fire Officer  who confirmed  the incident to Citi News, indicated that “two people are dead, while two others are in critical condition with the Benz cargo truck completely destroyed beyond repairs”

He therefore cautioned drivers to take precaution when driving on that stretch of road, adding that the road has a lot of curves, and can be deceptive at certain times.

On his part, DSP Paul Ankan, the Dominase District Police Commander  intimated that  indiscipline on the part of road users  is one  major cause of accidents on the that stretch because drivers turn a blind eye to road signs and other important indicators on the road, resulting in more accidents.

“Users of the road disobey road signs and this is the result of the carnage on our roads” he explained.

According to him, if drivers are able to control their speed  levels and obey road signs, it would help  reduce the road crashes.

“We can control the accident on this highway only if we obey road signs and reduce our speed” DSP Ankan hinted.
