REPORTS REACHING DAILY GUIDE indicate that one more victim of the accident last Sunday involving the convoy of Mr. Alan Kyerematen in Sunyani, capital of the Brong-Ahafo Region, has died.
The late Mr. Austin Appiah, who was in Mr. Kyerematen's convoy, died around 5:00 am on Wednesday at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi where he had been receiving treatment.
He was said to have been referred from Holy Family Hospital in Techiman to KATH due to the severity of injuries he sustained in the gory accident.
A reliable source from Alan's campaign team, who disclosed this to DAILY GUIDE, said until his death, Mr. Appiah was a close associate of the presidential aspirant.
His death brings to two, the number of key members in the former minister's campaign team who have died within a spate of three days.
Mr. Ibrahim Musah, 35, the driver of Alan's Pajero four-wheel-drive and Hajia Abiba, an occupant of the other vehicle, a cargo truck, died on the spot when the accident occurred.
Mr. Kyerematen's convoy, which was heading towards Wenchi in the Brong-Ahafo region, got involved in the bloody accident at a spot called Amen Nkwanta, near Nkonsia, about six kilometres to Wenchi at about 2:30pm last Sunday, November 11, 2007.
Eyewitness reports indicated that a driver of a cargo truck, loaded with charcoal and heading towards Techiman, lost control and veered into the path of one of the Pajeros in Mr. Kyerematen's fleet, with registration number GT 4155 V, resulting in head-on collision.
Hon. Kyerematen, a former Trade, Industry and PSI minister, escaped death because he had earlier boarded another car.
He was in the Brong Ahafo region to canvass support for his flagbearership bid.
