According to eyewitnesses’ account, the ghastly accident occurred at about midday on Banda Dorbor – Banda Ahenkro road in the Bono Region on Thursday, November 26, 2020.

A Kia truck full of supporters of the National Democratic Congress numbering about 70 was moving from Banda Dorbor to Banda Ahenkro for campaign activities.

Per the eyewitness report, the Kia truck which was carrying the passengers somersaulted at a certain stretch of the road.

The witness further disclosed he was at school when he received a phone call that some people from his hometown have been involved in a lorry accident. They brought the victims to the Nsawkaw hospital, so he quickly rushed to the hospital to find out that his brother was a victim.
