A driver of a hearse, a Benz Bus with registration number BA 242 – 18, conveying a body from the mortuary to the venue of a funeral died on the spot when the car was involved in an accident last Friday at Botokrom near Berekum in the Bono Region.

The deceased, identified as Anthony Kwabena Obeng, 49, was driving the hearse from Drobo in the Jaman South Municipality towards Berekum when the accident occurred.

The Berekum Municipal Commander of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service, DSP Ernest Ankamah Addo, confirmed the incident to the Daily Graphic yesterday.

According to him, the hearse somersaulted and landed in a nearby bush, resulting in the death of Obeng.

DSP Addo said the body of Obeng, as well as the one in the hearse, had been deposited at the St Anthony Hospital mortuary at Drobo.

He, however, said the police were still conducting investigations to ascertain what actually caused the accident.
