-The unfortunate incident which occurred Wednesday claimed one life.
A former president of Ghana and former Chairman of the Porcupine Warriors has also expressed his sympathy and support for the life of the equipment officer and the injured Asante Kotoko team members who are still in the hospital.
His message comes on the heels of a fatal car accident involving the Asante Kotoko Team bus and a truck which was loaded with fertilizer off the Nkawkaw main road bypass. The accident is believed to have happened at 9:45 PM, Wednesday evening.
The Head Coach of Asante Kotoko, Steve Pollack who was reported trapped in the bus after the incident for almost an hour has undergone surgery on Thursday night to take care of his knee injuries.
A representative of the Premier League Board, Thomas Boakye Agyeman revealed to asantekotokosc.com that the head coach of the team had successfully gone in and out of the theater after going through a knee operation at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH). The driver of the bus who also suffered some fractures in both legs due to the accident has also come out of the operating room successfully.
The Head of the medical team responsible for taking care of the injured members of the team, Dr. Michael Leat indicated that a number of people involved in the accident including the head coach, driver of the bus, Nana Berkye and versatile midfielder, Ollennu Ashitey would have to stay on at the hospital for further treatment before they will be finally discharged.
Unfortunately, the occupants of the bus complained of missing personal effects after the accident during rescue attempts. They confirmed that their phones, laptops and undisclosed amount of cash had been taken from the crash site by some of the rescuers.
Captain of the senior National Team, Asamoah Gyan, Former President John Mahama, The Ghana Football Association and President Akufo-Addo are among the many Ghanaians that have showed their support and solidarity to the team after the car crash.
