A 17-year-old goalkeeper, identified as Yaw Abedi, from Gomoa Nglesi, has been crashed to death during a friendly match at Odumasi.

He was ran over by a Sprinter Bus with registration number GW 9836-21, while chasing a ball which was kicked beyond the pitch and ended up on the highway.

Information gathered indicated that the match was a friendly between Gomoa Odumasi and Gomoa Nglesi football teams.

In an interview with Adom News, Unit Committee Member for Gomoa Odumasi, Ebenezer Abrokwaa, revealed that the goalkeeper was killed barely 15 minutes after the game started.

He revealed the ball went over the pitch after a long shot from one of the players, which ended in a goal.

As the goalkeeper crossed to retrieve the ball, the driver of the speeding bus headed to Cape Coast from Kasoa failed to brake on time, thus crashed the victim.

He died on the spot, bringing the game to a premature end.
