Eye-witnesses said the tanker driver was known for flouting road regulations and nearly crashed a road user at a previous location on that same day,” a UTV report indicated.
Before travelling that day, Dr Patrick Yamoah performed two surgeries that morning and decided to get an item in Kumasi before coming back.
The tanker driver has been arrested and detained at the police station assisting with investigations.
