Police Chief Inspector Jonas Newlove Agyei narrated to the court how Okoh’s decision to swerve a heap of sand on his lane, unfortunately, caused the accident.
He was rushed to the Bechem Government Hospital for treatment after he sustained injuries, but Ebony Reigns, Franklina and Lance Corporal Vondee sadly couldn’t survive.
Chief Inspector Agyei further stated investigations revealed that Okoh’s driving license had expired on August 28, 2015, before the accident.
He indicated that the driver charged and brought before the court following advice from the Attorney General’s Office.
