The driver of a tipper truck with registration GN 7842-21 died on the spot, while his mates are in critical condition after the truck’s bucket detached and hit the Kasoa Chrispo City Overpass on the Kasoa-Winneba Highway in the Central Region.

Eyewitnesses say the driver had offloaded sand at Kasoa and was returning towards Budumburam when the accident happened.

Reports indicate that upon reaching the Kasoa Overpass, the truck’s bucket detached, causing the driver and mates to be forcefully ejected through the windscreen onto the road.

The driver was not lucky as he was unfortunately run over causing his death.

The two other mates who sustained serious injuries are currently receiving treatment at the hospital.

The incident has been reported to the police for investigation.
