The National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Sammy Awuku has escaped death after he was involved in a road crash on the Ejisu-Konongo stretch in the Ashanti Region.
The incident occurred when Awuku was returning from Koforidua on Thursday after he had gone to train party organisers and volunteer groups.
According to a report filed by Citinewsroom, a tricycle crossed his vehicle just after Ejisu and lost control of its brakes causing it to run into the vehicle carrying him.
The vehicle, however, veered off the road and in the process got damaged.
Fortunately, Sammy Awuku’s driver also escaped the near fatal accident.
Sammy Awuku has been on the rounds training Party Organizers and mobilizers ahead of the elections.
