An overspeeding Sprinter bus with registration number AC 7700-23 has killed a 20-year-old motor rider at Jukwa Mbem in the Twifo-Hemang Lower Denkyira District of the Central Region.
This tragic incident occurred in the wee hours of today, Monday, June 5.
Information gathered revealed that the speeding Sprinter bus was coming from Cape Coast and heading towards Twifu Praso.
On reaching Jukwa Mbem, the driver switched on the high light, which momentarily blinded the rider, and as he could not see the road, he veered off from his lane into that of the Sprinter bus, which ran over him, killing him instantly.
However, the passenger on the Okada survived the crash but was severely injured and is battling for his life at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at the Jukwa Government Hospital mortuary.
Meanwhile, the driver of the Sprinter bus has been arrested and assisting with investigations at the Jukwa Police Station.
