Ebony's mother visits tragic accident scene

Members of Ashanti Regional Security Council accompanied her to the accident scene.

Her mother who could not control her tears appealed to the government to construct the road to avoid recurrence in the future.

She said "I appeal to the government, head of institutions and the road contractors across the country to do their works with due diligence to avoid unnecessary accidents that claim lives on our roads. If the contractor on this road (the spot of the accident) has sped up work, my daughter might not have died."

Ebony and three other persons were on board a Jeep with registration AS 497-16, travelling from Sunyani to Kumasi when a head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi occurred.

The driver of the vehicle escaped death, however, the other occupants -- a military officer identified as Francis Atsu Vondee and lady identified only as Frankie -- died later at the Bechem Government Hospital after they were rushed to the Hospital, DSP John Adusei, Mankraso District Commander has said.

The driver of the vehicle Ebony Reigns was travelling has revealed that the accident happened because he had tried to save a Sprinter Bus from crashing.

He was treated for a cut under his chin at the Bechem Hospital.
