Two elderly women died instantly when a tipper truck loaded with timber logs rammed into them while they stood by the road at Chiraa, near Sunyani.

The bodies of Madam Georgina Konadu, 70 and Madam Yaa Bour, 54, have been deposited at the regional hospital in Sunyani.

Narrating the incident to the Ghana News Agency at the Municipal Police Station, Emmanuel K. Dasah, 27, driver of the vehicle, said he was heading towards Techiman when the incident occurred.

He stated that his truck, with registration number AS 8227 R, suddenly developed a mechanical problem and that he lost control of the steering, resulting in the vehicle hitting the women.

He said following the accident, a mob surged on him and started assaulting him so he fled to avoid being lynched. He later reported to the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit in Sunyani.

The vehicle has been detained at the Chiraa Police station.
