Okyenhene escapes unhurt after car crash at Ankaase

The Okyenhene, Osaagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II on Sunday afternoon escaped unhurt when his car crashed at Ankaase, a village near Osino on the main Accra Kumasi Highway in the Eastern Region.

All occupants of the car managed to escape unhurt.

The Okyenhene’s vehicle veered off the road into the bush to avoid colliding with an oncoming tipper truck.

The Okyenhene was returning from a national golf awards dinner ceremony at the Manhyia palace in the afternoon on Sunday.

He had met with President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II on Saturday.

The cause of the accident is not yet known, but Citi News’ checks confirmed that the driver of the truck has been arrested by the Okyenhene’s security.
