Car loaded with drugs plunges into River Ochi

ImageDrugs costing about 1,000 Ghana cedis are still under River Ochi at
Breman Asikuma when a BMW saloon car with registration No. AS 7353 P
carrying the items plunged into the river on Wednesday.

Chief
Inspector Gershon Awuyeeh of the Asikuma Police told the GNA that the
driver of the car belonging to an Accra Pharmacy Company was on its
ways to supply drugs to some chemical shops in the
Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa District when the incident happened.

He
said the driver, Godwin Darko and Mr. Charles Huno, a store assistant,
who were on the vehicle, got out of the car before it submerged.

The
driver was avoiding some school children when it veered off the road
and plunged into the river that had over flooded its banks.

Some
scrap workers near the spot rescued them, sent them to the police
station and later to Our Lady of Grace Hospital where they were treated
and discharged for minor injuries.
