The Asankrangwa Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service is pursuing leads for the arrest of a grader driver whose recklessness had cost the lives of two people.

He mentioned that none of the drivers of the pragya perceived the danger because they were blinded by the light from the grader. He told Kaakyire that he suspects the driver to be a worker of the local assembly, given that that equipment had been used frequently for assembly projects.
