A/R: Journalists on tour with Regional Minister involved in accident at Pakyi

The bus carrying journalists on tour with the Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah has been involved in an accident.

According to one of the journalists, the accident occurred at Pakyi on the Kumasi-Obuasi road when a vehicle tried to do overtaking.

“A car carelessly hit ours in an attempt to overtake our car when we got to Pakyi,” the journalists said as quoted on 3news.com.

Currently, eight of the journalists who were on the bus have been sent to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi. Some of them have reportedly complained of body pains.

They are undergoing checks and will receive treatment for any injuries sustained.

Fortunately, news gathered indicates that none of the journalists on board the bus sustained any serious injury.

Modernghana News understood that the tour with the Ashanti Regional Minister has been cut short due to the accident.

The kind of carelessness on our roads , you would be surprised, it’s quite fortunate no death occurred and we wish them speedy recovery,

This calls for the expansion of most our roads. Majority of our road network are quite narrow, so in case of overtaking another vehicle, it becomes an issue of life and death. It is about time we start the dualization of most of our roads to avoid accidents like this.

Thank God nobody dead…
Wish them speedy recovery
