A group of young men, who were transporting marijuana to an unknown destination, were exposed after a car rammed into their faulty tricycle at Wenchi in the Bono Region.

The suspected men, who sustained minor injuries but realised the illegal substance was unmasked, quickly bolted into a nearby bush leaving behind one who was seriously injured.

The accident occurred on Sunday evening on the Wenchi-Wa stretch after a car with registration number GR 531-11 crashed into a tricycle and somersaulted several times.

According to witnesses, there were five occupants in the car including three adults and two children, who were heading to Hamile in the Upper West Region.

The injured was, however, sent to the Wenchi Methodist Hospital for treatment.
