Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the general secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has been involved in an accident in the Brong Ahafo Region.
The accident occurred when the Toyota SUV Mr Nketia was travelling in hit a taxi on the Kintampo-Techiman road on Sunday.
The general secretary was unhurt, but the taxi driver sustained severe injuries.
The circumstances leading to the accident are unclear but initial unconfirmed reports suggest that the taxi driver crossed suddenly into the lane of Mr Nketia’s vehicle, giving the SUV driver no time to apply the brake.
The taxi ended up mangled while the front of the SUV was badly damaged.
Mr Nketia was reportedly heading to Kumasi with other party officials when the accident occurred.
