A motorbike accident at Yaw Bronya in the Bosome Freho District of the Ashanti Region has claimed the lives of three individuals.
Per reports, the motorbike, which moved at top speed, lost balance after hitting a pothole on the road and ran into a female pedestrian who was crossing the road.
The victims – two males, Augustine Annor, a lotto agent and Kwame Reuben, an ‘okada’ rider and an unidentified female victim, believed to be in her late sixties, died at the spot.
Sources say Augustine Annor engaged the services of Kwame Reuben to transport him to Foase in line of duty.
Meanwhile, the bodies of the deceased have since been deposited at the morgue for autopsy and preservation.
According to Assembly member for Tebeso Electoral Area, Adomako Mensah, the area has recorded a series of motorbike accidents due to over speeding.
He says many motorists ignore road safety precautions.
“They refuse to wear the helmet. Most of these deaths could have been avoided by the use of helmets,” he said.
