A fatal car accident on Sunday, 2 May 2021, involving a Ghanaian third-tier football club has left one player dead.
Sankore-based Real Tettekwao United FC were on their way to play a friendly match against Union Rovers in Goaso, Ahafo Region.
The crash happened at the Akrodie junction on the Goaso-Bibiani highway and that led to instant death of Fuseinu Mohammed.
The rest who sustained injuries were rushed to Goaso Municipal Hospital while those in critical conditions were referred to the Hwidiem Government Hospital.
Coach Real Tettekwao United FC Frank Owusu is quoted by AshesGyamera.com as saying: ''The driver failed brake at the Akrodie junction and the unexpected thing happened. It is a sad situation to say the least.
''We were going to Ahafo regional capital Goaso from Sankore to play a friendly with Union Rovers since we have plans to register for the upcoming second division league.
''One of our players who is even a student died on the spot and others have suffered different form of injuries.
''We couldn't hire a bus so we were travelling in a KIA Rhino due to lack of funds.
''It wasn't intentional to risk the lives of people but we had to make this journey and fine tune the squad.''
