One person died Saturday morning at Agona Swedru in the Central Region after a speeding unregistered Toyota Corolla saloon vehicle hit and pushed two lovers into the Akora River.
A second person suspected to be dead is the female who was standing with the boyfriend and were knocked and pushed into the river. Good Samaritans who were around rushed to the scene and entered the river in an attempt to rescue the five but they found just the four.
The driver of the Toyota Camry who was driving at top speed after initiating a sharp curve lost control and veered off his lane to the left side, hit the two lovers and a shop before entering the river around 2am.
The car was towed around 6am and has since been transported to the Swedru Divisional Unit of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service. The body of the young lady whose identity is not yet known as of midday Saturday had still not been found.
The boyfriend of the lady is responding to treatment at the Agona Swedishru Government Hospital, after he was rescued from the river together with the three occupants of the vehicle.
