17 Cops involved in near fatal crash, 3 in critical condition

About 17 Police officers from the Eastern Regional Police Headquarters have been involved in a near-fatal accident on Apirede Akuapem to Somanya road.

Three of the officers in critical condition have been rushed to the Eastern Regional Hospital whilst the remaining were receiving treatment Atua Government Hospital.

The Police Officers were aboard a Mercedes Sprinter bus from Koforidua to Somanya for official duty, however, on reaching a section of the road the driver allegedly failed brake while descending a hill, therefore, lost control of the steering wheel resulting in the vehicle violently crashing into the bush.

Many of the injured police personnel were rushed to Atua Government Hospital even though the accident occurred very close to the newly built Somanya District Hospital which however remains closed despite having been handed over for operationalization.

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police Dr. George Akufo Dampare is expected to visit the injured police officers this afternoon.
