Gomoa Akoti – C/R: One officer dead, others injured after truck ran into police vehicle

An accident on the road between Gomoa Akramah and Akoti Junction in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region has left several people injured with one police officer feared dead.

A KIA Rhino truck (registration number GX 4135-24) experienced a brake failure and veered off course according to reports, which resulted in the accident.

It first struck a vehicle belonging to Chinese nationals before crashing into a police vehicle parked on the roadside at Akotsi Junction.

An eyewitness, Nai Appiah Nortey, who spoke with Onua News’ Nana Yaw Asare said some officers were in the parked police car, while two others were in the trunk. It’s believed the officers were making purchases nearby when the accident occurred.

“The truck was descending from Gomoa Akramah hills direction towards Akotsi junction. But all of a sudden it lost control, crossed the main road and hit the police vehicle parked on the shoulder of the road. It dragged the police vehicle and finally parked in front of a shop.

“There were some police officers in the trunk of the vehicle and some even fell from the trunk as soon as the accident happened. One person is dead while the rest have been rushed to the Trauma and Specialist hospital in Winneba including the Chinese national,” Nai Appiah Nortey narrated.

The Central East Regional Operations commander and other senior officers arrived at the scene to assess the extent of damage.
