A nursing mother has been confirmed dead while her two-year-old daughter and driver of the vehicle they were travelling in are in critical condition.

This happened on Tuesday in an accident at Gomoa Mpota near Gomoa Mampong on the Kasoa-Winneba Highway.

The woman, whose identity is yet to be known, lost her life instantly in the accident this morning when their car crashed into a broken down vehicle parked in the middle of the road.

“According to the police, there was a spoilt car in the middle of the road so as the cargo car was coming from the Winneba junction towards Kasoa. The car which had broken down failed to put a warning sign behind the car and the moving vehicle crashed into the broken down car,” an Adom FM reporter said.

The reporter, Kofi Adjei added, “As I am speaking to you now, the driver and child are in critical condition.”
