Sources say the accident, which involved multiple vehicles, occurred when a trailer truck with registration number AS 4229-X lost control around Apedwa and crashed into his vehicle.

While the trailer was said to be traveling from Kumasi towards Accra, the MCE and his driver were moving from Accra to Kumasi.

According to eyewitnesses, the vehicle, with registration number GN 2060-18 was damaged beyond recognition; trapping the occupants within.

The victims were subsequently taken to the Kibi Government Hospital for treatment.
