Police begin investigation into car crash at KNUST
The Ashanti Regional Police Command has commenced investigations into a car crash and another incident that claimed the lives of some students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
School authorities say police have taken details of the car crash scene and towed the affected vehicle.
Three students of KNUST died on March 27, 2021, in two separate incidents.
While two out of three occupants died in a car crash, the third student lost his life after he fell on the staircase of the first floor of Unity Hall.
The University Relations Officer, Dr. Daniel Norris Bekoe, in an interview, disclosed that the affected car has been towed and investigations are underway to ascertain the course of the crash.
“The matter was reported to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology police station. So they have come to tow the car, and they are investigating the course of the accident,” he said.
Police had earlier said that, out of the five persons who were in the vehicle, four were KNUST students while one was a University of Ghana student.
A police source also said that their preliminary investigations have shown that the driver of the vehicle was attempting to negotiate a sharp curve and run into a tree.
