Reports indicates that the driver of the Toyota who has been identified as 40-year-old Kwabena Boakye was reportedly returning from Obuasi with his wife. Reports further indicated that he decided to use the Bekwai-Fomena road due to the bad nature of the Anwiankwanta-Obuasi road. He is said to have been a manager at the MTS department of the AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi mine.

He was with a lady who is believed to be his wife and two occupants of the saloon car suffered serious injuries and were transported to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for medical attention.

The driver on the trailer has also been identified as 34-year-old Katim Nasiru. His mate, Ibrahim Alhassan escaped death as he had earlier jumped off the truck to try to stop it with a chock.
