A 19-year-old okada rider and a 36-year-old woman have lost their lives in a fatal accident in Wassa Adaase in the Wassa East district of the Western region.
Narrating the incident which also left one person in critical conditions, assembly man for Adaase electoral area, Hon. Stephen Ahianyor said the motor bike was loaded with woods and carrying three persons including the rider traveling from Wassa Ateiku to Wassa Adaase.
He added that, just after a few minutes of starting the journey, they met a car also coming from Wassa Adaase to Wassa Ateiku.
According to the assemblyman because the Okada rider was on a top speed and also heavily loaded, he suddenly lost control of the steering and subsequently collided with the oncoming vehicle.
“All three persons on the motor bike instantly went into coma and were quickly rushed to the Ateiku Christian hospital”, he said.
The Okada rider identified as Kwaku Dan and one other passenger, Esi Ayida were pronounced dead on arrival while the remaining one person, Yaw Adekah sustained very serious injuries.
He is however receiving medical treatment at the emergency ward of Ateiku Christian hospital.
Hon. Stephen Ahianyor disclosed that the mortal remains of the two have been deposited at Ateiku Christian mortuary for preservation while police are also investigating the cause of the accident.
