General Lance Corporal Frank Dogbe of the Rapid Deployment Force (RDF) here in Takoardi who was escorting a Takoradi- Boligantanga bound STC Scania Marcapolo bus with registration number GE- 5187-16 which was involved in an accident at Amoma Nkwanta in the Brong Ahafo Region some two days ago has died.

It will be recalled that the said police officer was escorting the STC bus to Bolgatanga some two days ago when it was involved in a fatal accident killing two passengers on the spot.

He was air lifted to the 37 military hospital in Accra for treatment but died yesterday evening.

The STC Bus was travelling from Takoradi to Bolgatanga, when it had information that the Buipe Bridge has been closed to traffic and so had to divert through Techiman, but while descending a slope on a section of the road at Amoma Nkwanta the bus hit the rear of a Mercedes articulated truck moving in the same direction.  The 32 passengers on board the  bus sustained various degrees of injuries and were rushed to the Jaman government hospital, the Kintampo Municipal Hospital and Techiman Holy Family Hospital.
