4 Die in accident on Twifo-Praso road

Four persons died last Saturday when a truck they were travelling on burst a tyre and somersaulted near Jukwa on the Twifo Praso-Cape Coast road.

The bodies of the deceased, including the driver of the truck, Sherif Ibrahim, 27, have been deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital.

Four others are said to be receiving treatment at the same hospital.

The Regional Officer of the National Road Safety Commission, Mr Stephen Anokye, said the truck, with registration number CR 124-10, was loaded with logs from Jukwa and was travelling towards Cape Coast.

He said the truck burst a tyre which made the driver lose control of the vehicle.

The vehicle was said to have somersaulted, throwing out the people in the bucket of the vehicle. 

Mr Anokye urged drivers to ensure regular maintenance of their vehicles to help avoid such accidents.

He indicated that it was obvious the vehicle was not regularly maintained and appealed to drivers to be more cautious on the road.
