PNC Secretary Escapes Death
THE GENERAL Secretary of the Peoples National Convention (PNC) and a leading member of the Committee for Joint Action (CJA), Mr. Bernard Mornah, escaped death by a whisker when his salon car somersaulted while negotiating a curve at Atrensu, near Techiman, in the early hours of Wednesday, November 25 2009.
Mr. Mornah was returning from Wa when the accident occurred. An eyewitness who spoke to DAILY GUIDE said Mornah’s driver lost control of the car and in an attempt to avoid a head-on collision with another vehicle, veered off the road and somersaulted, before landing on the road. In the car were his wife and three-year-old child.
When DAILY GUIDE visited the Holy Family Hospital where the four had been admitted, doctors were busily attending to them while several sympathizers gathered at the hospital gate, trying to get entry to visit the wounded. Newsmen were not allowed to take pictures at the hospital. When news of the accident started making the rounds, many radio stations picked the story, with some treating it as breaking news.
Coincidentally, it was the same spot where Alan Kyeremanteng’s convoy had an accident in the run-up to the NPP National Delegates Congress to elect a flagbeaerer last year. In the said accident, one of the drivers of the convoy died, while several others were injured. The sharp curve near the outskirts of Atrensu is an accident-prone area that has seen several accidents in recent memory.
