One person has been confirmed dead with 4 others injured in an accident involving a Daf truck and 5 other autos at Bogoso in the Western Region on November 19, 2022.
Police investigation has disclosed that the motive force of the Daf truck, carrying logs from the Prestea finish of the street, upon reaching Bogoso lost management whereas negotiating a curve. In the process, the logs fell on the 5 other autos.
Personnel of the MTTD are on the grounds and the street has since been opened to traffic.
The Ghana National Fire Service is helping to rescue the victims believed to be trapped in the accident autos.
Augustus Osei, driver of one of many autos concerned in the accident said the breaking system of the Daf truck failed, which resulted in the accident.
“I was coming from Boadie to Bogoso and we had bypassed the roundabout. The Daf truck had already climbed the hill but suddenly all we could see was the truck reversing by itself so I shouted for all my passengers to exit the vehicle.
“Three of us in the vehicle managed to exit but one person could not exit so he died,” he narrated.
