The Executives sustained injuries and were rushed to the Atibie Government Hospital for first aid and later referred to Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua. However, their vehicle is badly damaged.
Their accident follows several other accidents involving NDC supporters and executives in the past few weeks.
Just two days ago, November 27, a KIA truck full of NDC supporters was involved in a near-fatal accident at Brohane junction in the Tain district of the Ahafo Region.
The supporters, numbering about 150, were said to be travelling for a party programme at Kabruno at Banda Central when the truck they were travelling in burst a tyre, causing it to somersault and eventually throwing the occupants into a nearby gutter.
The victims were conveyed to the Nsorkor Hospital, but, patients had to be administered treatment on the floor as the hospital run out of beds due to the large numbers.
Two persons are said to be in critical condition and have been referred to the Techiman Holy Family Hospital.
