Two Female Teachers Die In Fatal Accident On Adukrom to Somanya Road

Two female teachers from Yilo Krobo Senior High School (SHS) died in a car accident on the Adukrom to Somanya road in the Eastern Region. The accident occurred on Sunday around 10:00 pm at Akuni No. 2 while they were returning from a colleague’s enstoolment ceremony in the Kwahu area.

The crash involved three vehicles.

  1. A car with the registration number GV 1263-20, owned by the Abuakwa North Municipal Assembly.
  2. A car with the registration number GR 459-21, driven by Bernard Owusu Agyeman, with a Chinese national as a passenger.
  3. A Toyota Corolla with the registration number GR 901-21, which carried the victims.

The victims were a Physical Education (PE) teacher and a National Service personnel. They died on the spot. A male teacher, who oversees the school’s cadet program, was critically injured and is receiving treatment at Yilo Krobo District Hospital. The bodies of the deceased have been moved to the hospital’s morgue.

Witnesses reported that the accident happened because the driver of the Abuakwa North Assembly vehicle tried to overtake another vehicle improperly, leading to a collision with the Toyota Corolla. The third vehicle then crashed into the scene.

This accident occurred just hours after another fatal accident involving President Akufo Addo’s convoy on the Bunso to Akyem Asafo section of the Accra-Kumasi Highway. In this incident, one of the President’s drivers, Mr. Kwesi Atta, died, and several security team members were injured.
