A Sprinter bus driver, 45, was killed when his vehicle collided with a stalled cargo truck in Apeatu, a neighborhood in the Suhum Municipality, on the main Accra-Kumasi Highway. The accident is being looked into by Suhum police.
Witnesses claim that the deceased, Emmanuel Debrah, was killed after he collided with a halted freight vehicle with the license plate number AW 4725-16 while operating a Sprinter bus with the registration number GC 2287-15 from Accra.
Debrah may have been sleeping off or his car may have acquired a technical issue, but the collision, which happened on the morning of Tuesday, September 26, 2023, also left a second person hurt.
