Ghanaian Musician Kuami Eugene Suffers Broken Wrist, Other Injuries After Near-Fatal Accident

Ghanaian musician Kuami Eugene encountered some serious injuries on Sunday night following a collision between his vehicle and a tipper truck on the George Walker Bush N1 Highway.

According to Modern Ghana Editor, Emmanuel Ajarfor Abugri, who was an eyewitness to the accident, Eugene’s car, a Range Rover, rammed into a truck that seemed to be moving at a slow pace on the highway. He attributed the accident to poor visibility on the N1 highway, which lacks adequate lighting, compounded by the absence of tail lights on the tipper truck.

“I was behind him, and so I was the first person to rush to his rescue. Kwame was struggling to come out so I brought him out of the car and helped the passenger too, before some guys also came around. I arranged for a vehicle to convey them to the UGMC hospital.

“He had a broken arm with blood all over his hands. The car is badly damaged and all the airbags exploded. He could have died,” he’s quoted by MyJoyOnline to have said.

Despite the severity of the crash, Eugene’s male passenger appeared uninjured initially. However, he later reported experiencing neck and back pains upon arrival at the UGMC Hospital.
