Two Motor Riders Die In Road Crash

Two motor riders met their untimely death on Wednesday evening at Kwatire in Sunyani West District when their motors had a head on collision.

Chief Inspector Francis Addo, Brong Ahafo Regional Police Station Officer of Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) told the Ghana News Agency in Sunyani that a pillion rider, Ms Esther Kumi, aged 17 is on admission at the Sunyani Government Hospital.

He said bodies of the deceased, Acostic Noah 27, and Kwame Wooder, a 28-year-old carpenter had been deposited at the same hospital.

Mr Addo said on March 19, 2014, Wooder was riding an Apsonic motorbike with registration number M-13- BA 679 from Odumase to Kwatire, whilst Acostic was from Kwatire towards Odumase with unregistered Haojin bike.

He stated that when the two riders reached a spot near Odomase cemetery they tried to dodge a pot hole on the road and therefore had a head on coalition.

Chief inspector Addo said the two riders died on the spot whilst Ms Kumi who was on the Apsonic motorbike was responding to treatment.

He said police investigations had revealed that both riders and the girl on admission were not wearing helmets and the Haojin motorbike too was not having lights and reflectors.

Chief Inspector Addo advised motor riders to obey driving regulations by wearing helmet and ensure their motorbikes had reflectors for not only their safety but other road users too.
