Exactly a week after the team bus of Kumasi Asante was involved in a ghastly accident near Nkawkaw, details of what actually led to the accident have emerged.
Nana Berchie, the driver of the bus speaking for the first time since the accident happened in an interview with Kumasi based Silver FM has given a vivid account of circumstances that led to the tragic accident.
Confirming ealier reports in the media, the long serving driver of the club said he was blinded by the highlight of another vehicle so when the vehicle that was in front of the bus suddenly stopped, it was difficult to avoid it.
“A car overtook me and because it was using the highlight it affected my vision and a truck which was seemingly in motion in front of the Kotoko bus suddenly stopped, so I run into it.”
The Asante Kotoko team last week Wednesday was returning to Kumasi after a league match with Inter Allies in Accra when their team rammed into a stationary vehicle killing the team Equipment Officer, Thomas Kofi Asare and Injuured several others.
