A first-year Home Economics student of Asesewa Senior High School in the Eastern region has died in a tragic motorbike accident at Mampong stretch of Somanya to Odumase krobo road while returning from a nightclub.

The 20-year-old Batsa Florence currently on vacation as a result of double-track SHS policy was on a motorbike with her female friend and the motor rider heading home from Memorial nightclub in Somanya at about 2:00 am when the accident occurred.

According to the motor rider Tetteh Patrick Lawer, an oncoming vehicle suddenly veered off to their lane and hence attempted to swerve to avoid a head-on collision but the motorbike crashed.

The rider and the other pillion rider sustained serious injuries but Batsa Florence died on the spot.

The injured are on admission at St Martin’s De Porres Hospital in Argomanya while the body of the deceased has been deposited at the morgue of the same facility.
