The campaign vehicle of Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, the New Patriotic Party (NPP)'s parliamentary candidate for Tema West in the Greater Accra Region, has knocked down and killed an 18-year-old girl in Tema.
The girl, Sarah Believe Amponsah, was walking by side of the road when the KIA Sportage vehicle veered off the road and hit her and a yet-to-be-identified passer-by.
According to a report the Daily Guide, the two were rushed to the Sakumono Hospital but Sarah was pronounced dead on arrival while the passer-by was admitted.
The report said Mr Ahenkorah was not driving the car that killed the girl and was not in the car at the time of the accident.
The car's driver reportedly submitted himself to the Sakumo police, who arrested him.
Investigations into the matter are still ongoing.
