The Ghana National Fire Service says it is saddened by the unfortunate accident involving five of its officers while they were responding to a fire incident.

Four of the fire officers were left in critical condition after a motorcycle and the fire tender they were travelling on collided at a section of the Kwame Danso-Atebubu road in the Bono East Region on Tuesday.

One person, the pillion rider, is reported to have died in the accident.

The Atebubu-Amantin Divisional Police commander, ACP Samuel Alordey, in narrating the incident  said, “on the way coming to the hospital where the fire alarm was sounded, they got involved in an accident. The car knocked down a motor rider with a pillion rider. The pillion rider died. The car summersaulted several times and landed upside down. It is damaged beyond repairs.”

A statement released by the Ghana National Fire Service said the Chief Fire Officer was deeply saddened by the incident and gave assurances of giving the victims the best medical attention.
