A disastrous ambulance accident has killed four persons on board at the Nzema East Municipality of the Western Region.

The ambulance which was conveying a patient from the Axim Government Hospital to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi, crashed into an articulated truck on Friday evening.

The patient and his relative, and two others on board – a nurse and an Ambulance worker were all killed in the accident.

The Ambulance with registration number GT – 7348-15, reportedly crashed into the truck with registration number, GV 1453-14, when other cars on the road delayed in paving the way for the speeding ambulance.

According to eyewitnesses who spoke to reporters, the ambulance driver was forced to use the shoulders of the road at top speed, because the cars delayed the process of making way for him.
