Woman dies at father's funeral at Suhum

A 26-year-old woman has died after she was knocked down by a vehicle while helping to provide refreshment at her father’s funeral at Suhum in the Eastern region.

The deceased, Afua, from Prestea met her untimely death at the Suhum Fire Service junction Saturday.

The body has since been deposited at the Suhum Government Hospital morgue.

Afua joined her family from Prestea to attend the funeral of her father, Adu Maxwell, who also reportedly died through an accident last month.

She was serving mourners when a speeding saloon car heading to Suhum from Kumasi skidded off the road and veered into the funeral grounds, crushing her in the process.

Her sister also collapsed after the accident but has regained consciousness.

Meanwhile, two other mourners attending the funeral from Accra were also involved in an accident Saturday dawn.

The Suhum Police commander, Supt. Yahaya Muchiraru, has confirmed the incident.
