A deputy Communications Minister, George Andah, is reported to be in critical condition after his car got involved in accident on Saturday.
Unconfirmed reports say Mr. Andah’s vehicle collided head-on with another vehicle on the Kasoa-Winneba Highway.
It is not clear when Mr. Andah who is the Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya West was travelling to.
Three other persons who were in Mr. Andah’s car are reported to have also sustained serious degrees of injuries.
The four victims have since been airlifted to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra for emergency care.
According to a report filed by Joy News Central Regional Correspondent, Richard Kwadwo Nyarko, the Deputy Minister was in the constituency to attend a number of social functions most of which were funerals.
On his way from Awutu-Budumburam to one of the communities, his vehicle collided with tipper truck fully loaded with sand in a curve at Awutu-Loye.
The minister, his driver, police guard and two New Patriotic Party (NPP) officials as well as the driver of the tipper truck, are in critical condition, the reporter said.
They were transported to the St. Gregory Hospital at Kasoa where a helicopter was called in to airlift the injured to Accra for attention.
