Deadly accident at Mankranso leads to two seriously injured 

A mini bus caravan coming from Kumasi to Sunyani, has caused a deadly accident, after the driver lost concentration on the road. The driver who was identified as Joseph Baah, was driving from Kumasi the cultural capital of Asante, when he lost full control of the caravan mini bus at Mankranso. Mankranso, the capital of the Ahafo Ano Southwest, is the only town in Ghana known for the high breed of bush meat. Whether is grasscutter or any kind of bush meat, you will find some, when you get to the town. It is a town full of hunters and farmers, because of their abundance in bush animals. From Kumasi to Sunyani, is a highway which passes through Mankranso, Adugyama, Nyamebekyere, Bechem and to Sunyani. These towns lies on the highway, which connects the Kumasi regional city to the Bono regional city, Sunyani. 


Mankranso is a straight road and a few curves, with speed limits of 50km/h. Outskirts of Mankranso is 80km/h maximum, before Adugyama. Right before Adugyama, is where the caravan mini bus driver lost concentration and, had the accident which lead to two people been admitted for serious injuries. The driver was going on an average speed limit, but the car wasn't taking the speed. At the outskirts of Mankranso town, heading to Adugyama was where Joseph rubbed his eyes and couldn't see anything again. He was speeding on the 80km/h maximum road, and suddenly robbed his eyes with his right hand, whiles his left hand continued to steer the car. The car lost balance to gravity, and somersaulted. 


The accident was due to the wind blowing, and Joseph who couldn't stop rubbing his eyes, left guard of his steering wheel. The wind took the car by surprise, and ended up somersaulting two times, before landing near the Mankranso forest reserve entry point. No casualties was recorded, as all passengers came out of the accident in tact. But two were detained at the Mankranso hospital, after doctors found traces of serious internal bleeding in their X-ray's. 


An incoming taxi which was coming from Bechem to Mankranso, took the passengers to the hospital but upon arriving, two were hospitalized for internal bleeding complications. The two will be referred to Sunyani Regional Hospital for emergency examination, said Doctor Boakye Nyarko, the medical superintendent. The two who didn't sustained any physical injuries, has been admitted because of the serious internal bleeding wounds. Dr. Boakye Nyarko said it was possible they have been having series of bad health lately, and that could count for their internal injuries. The two were not siblings, but different travellers in the same car. If not treated urgently, they might all die within a week maximum, said the doctor. 


It was hard to get both patients to speak, despite the strict adherence to at hospital. Matthew, one of the two victims admitted for internal bleeding wounds, told me they warned the driver to slow down but he wasn't listening to their calls. It was by Grace they survive without any physical injuries, but by the way doctors are saying, he will end up spending more days at the hospital. The other who couldn't speak to me, was still stabilized waiting for their ambulance to transport them to the Sunyani Regional Hospital, for emergency examination and treatment.
