A very sad report coming from the Ashanti Region paints the grotesque imagery of how a whole nuclear family was wiped out in a fatal accident.
The report which was sampled from Starr FM indicates that the family of six perished on the Kumasi-Bibiani road after their Honda Civic vehicle burst its offside tyre and plunged into a river on January 8, 2021.
Ashanti Regional Police MTTD commander Chief Superintendent, Adu-Boahen confirmed the incident to EIB News’ Ashanti Regional correspondent Isaac Justice Bediako.
“Yes, the report on the accident has come to my attention that six people have died in the Nkawie area. Investigations have commenced. I’m yet to receive facts on the accident from my officers on the ground,” the police boss is quoted as having said.
Starrfm.com.gh reported a close friend of the perished family as saying “they attended the wedding of Eunice’s sister-in-law (that is her husband’s sister)”.
The source added: “They were six (6) in the car and all of them couldn’t make it. Eunice, the husband, Eunice’s mother, their child and two other children. They were returning from the wedding and they met their untimely deaths.
“The husband attempted an overtaking and saw another car coming. In an attempt to swerve, they landed in a nearby river and got drowned.”
