Mark Mireku, a driver of one of the buses involved in the deadly Domopoase crash in Elmina, was placed in police custody.

The Central Police Commander, COP Paul Manly Awuni, told Citi News that Mr. Mireku is expected to appear in court on January 31, 2020.

“Hyundai bus driver was handled and discharged yesterday. He was immediately caught and detained.” Mr. Mireku was also charged with negligent driving.

Tuesday’s fatal crash at Dompoase, near Elmina, left 35 dead and 57 severely injured.

The National Road Safety Authority has started investigations into the deadly road crash saying that it is hoped that “multi-disciplinary” inquiries would advise the next phase of “remedial steps and initiatives” to prevent future instances of such road crashes.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Authority said the inquiry seeks to determine contributing factors and other possible administrative lapses that contributed to the accident.

The National Road Safety Authority has alerted commuters and the public about their personal safety and that of other road users.

“In the meantime, the public is reminded that road safety is a way of life that can be achieved by observing basic safety precautions on speed, wrong overtaking, fatigue, and distractive driving, while passengers are expected to take front-line roles by speaking out against driver misconduct.”
