According to the police, the driver of the Nissan Primera car with registration number A 486 13, was heading towards Tanoso from Sunyani when the incident occurred.

We found the car in a resultant position with all the four tyres facing upwards. So with support from those around, we managed to rescue the occupants.

There were four females in the car and a driver. They all sustained various degrees of injuries and they were rushed to the regional hospital for admission.
