A 49-year-old man of Mafi Kpoviadzi in the Central Tongu District, Courage Ahianyevi Agbeko, died on the spot after the motorbike he was riding, crashed into an oncoming vehicle at Lawui Junction on the Akatsi- Wute road of the Volta region.

Courage Ahianyevi Agbeko was riding a motorbike with registration number M-17-VR 1125 and was heading towards Akatsi, when his motorbike allegedly collided with a Toyota Avensis caravan car from the opposite direction with registration number, GE 7395-13, on Monday, September 6, at about 1400 hours.

Mr Wisdom Akpablie, the assembly member for Wute electoral area, said that both the driver and other occupants of the vehicle were not found at the accident scene when he arrived with the police.

He added the body of the deceased was taken to the St. Paul’s Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.

The vehicle involved in the accident was yet to be towed to the police station for examination and testing.
