They died shortly after their arrival at the Nkoranza Saint Teresa?s Catholic Hospital at Nkoranza in the Brong-Ahafo Region.


Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Joseph Owusu, Nkoranza Municipal Police Commander told the Ghana News Agency that the late Opoku and Twumasi were both masons riding on a motorbike with registration number M15-AS186 to work and were involved in a crash around 0830 hours on that fateful day.

At a spot opposite the Nkoranza Kassardjan Cemetery on the Nkoranza-Sekyedomase highway one James Asare, 35, driver of a tipper truck with registration number BA2328-15 allegedly turned all of a sudden forcing Opoku, the motor rider to run unto the back of the truck.

He said they sustained serious degree of injuries on their heads and caused them to bleed profusely.
Meanwhile the Municipal Police Commander has expressed concern about the behaviour by some recalcitrant motor-riders, despite a joint police and other stakeholders? educational campaign on road safety measures in the Municipality.

DSP Owusu said: ?The?public fear HIV and AIDS and other communicable deadly diseases but seem to care less about their lives when driving vehicles or riding motorbikes which can claim many lives in a crash.?

He therefore advised road users including pedestrians to endeavour to take every educational campaign on road safety measures serious to save their lives.
