Presidential convoy in fatal crash

The presidential motorcade has been involved in a ghastly accident in Bunso in the Eastern region Sunday evening.

A statement issued by the Director of Communications at the Office of the President said the unfortunate incident occurred whilst the convoy was on its way back from Kumasi, after accompanying the President to Kumasi for a series of events this weekend.

The President was not in the convoy.

Tragically, one of the drivers, Mr. Kwesi Atta, has lost his life. Additionally, several close protection and police officers from the President’s security detail have sustained varying degrees of injuries, and received initial treatment at the Suhum Government Hospital.

“The injured persons are currently being evacuated to the University of Ghana Medical Centre for further treatment and observation. Several vehicles in the convoy have also been completely wrecked as a result of the accident,” the statement said
