One person has been confirmed dead in an accident that occurred in Kumasi at Suame roundabout.

The vehicle which was heading towards Kejetia from Tafo failed its brake at Suame roundabout when a passenger wanted to alight.

The driver who wanted to save the lives of passengers onboard attempted to drive to the shoulders of the road to avoid an accident but ended up driving into traders in the early hours of the day, killing one person on the spot.

Two other traders are said to be in critical condition at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

The driver has been arrested while the vehicle has been impounded by the police at Suame Divisional command.
