Ebony death: Police reveal how accident happened
The Ghana Police Service has been giving an account of how twenty-year-old Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Ebony Reigns, known in real life as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, and two others, died in a fatal accident, whiles travelling from Sunyani to Accra.
Many Ghanaians have been saddened by the demise of the starlet, but there have been conflicting accounts as to how the fatal crash happened.
According to a report from the Ghana Police Service, Ebony, and the two others in the jeep, lost their lives on Thursday night, after their car collided with an oncoming VIP bus, when their driver tried to avoid a heap of sand in their lane.
The police said the sand was meant for the maintenance of the road.
Whereas the occupants of the bus escaped unhurt, the police in its report said only the driver of the Jeep whose names was given as Chartey Oko Pinehad, aged 29, survived the accident, and is receiving treatment at the Bechem hospital.
The police also in its report said the remains of Ebony and the two others have been deposited at the Bechem government hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.
The police said the driver of the VIP Bus driver has also been given an “enquiry bail.”
Ebony, who’s billed to travel to Belgium this Saturday for a show, and later embark on an European tour, was in Sunyani to visit her mother who returned from the United Kingdom.
