“The driver failed brake at the Akrodie junction and the unexpected thing happened. It is a sad situation to say the least,” Owusu told AshesGyamera.com reporter Evans Gomez in an interview from the accident scene.
“We were going to Ahafo regional capital Goaso from Sankore to play a friendly with Union Rovers since we have plans to register for the upcoming second division league. One of our players who is even a student died on the spot and others have suffered different form of injuries.
“We couldn’t hire a bus so we were travelling in a KIA Rhino due to lack of funds. It wasn’t intentional to risk the lives of people but we had to make this journey and fine-tune the squad,” he added.
