Truck kills student at Kpong

An 18-year-old form two student of the Manya-Krobo Senior High School (MAKROSEC) in the Odumase-Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region died in accident that occurred over the weekend.

The deceased, identified as Yayra Adonu, was pronounced dead upon arrival at St. Martin de Porres Hospital at Agormanya.

A driver of the Renault Truck ran over the student on Saturday at 11pm pm when she fell off a motorbike on the Akosombo-Tema Highway near the Manya Krobo Rural Bank at Kpong.

It’s unclear where the student was going at that time.

The Akuse Police Commander, Supt. Winfred Asare-Nyarko, who confirmed the incident, said his outfit has not established the cause of the death.

Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has since been deposited at the morgue of the hospital pending autopsy while police investigations continue.
