Deputy Communications Minister, George Andah has been involved in a car accident on the Bawjiase road in Kasoa.
He was airlifted to the 37 Military Hospital for medical attention following the crash.
The Deputy Minister was heading towards Loye, a village near Gomoa Buduburam when the accident occurred.
The accident was confirmed to Citi News Central Regional correspondent, Calvis Tetteh by the Awutu Senya West Constituency Chairman, Charles Amoah.
Mr. Andah had been on a tour of the constituency at the time.
An aide to Mr. Andah told citinewsrooom.com deputy Minister is reportedly in a stable condition.
Members of Mr. Andah’s family have since made their way to the hospital.
“I have seen him. He is in a stable condition. Thankfully I came here to meet the family. They are here with him. They are supporting him,” the aide said.
Mr. Andah’s vehicle was involved in a collision with an articulated truck.
He was in the car with the driver, a bodyguard and a constituency executive from Awutu Senya West.
The Buduburam -Jei river stretch of road which was being used by the Deputy Communications Minister was constructed some 15 years ago to be used as a bypass road to ease vehicular traffic during the construction of the main Kasoa – Cape Coast trunk road.
Since then no maintenance has been seen on that road, even though it is now widely used by motorists to connect to Swedru and Accra.
The driver of the double axles tipper truck has been arrested and detained at the Buduburam police station, and is undergoing interrogation, an eyewitness noted to Citi News.
