A supposed day of happiness became a day of mourning as the families of Disu Kamaru and Janatil Yakubu are bereaved following the death of their groom few hours after wedding.
The couple got involved in a ghastly accident as they were heading to their wedding reception, while the groom was crushed instantly, the bride is still battling with her life in the hospital at Madina in Accra, Ghana.
It was learned that after the first part of the ceremony, guests were supposed to have converged on Africana Guest House, opposite TF Hostel at Atomic Junction where the reception was billed to take place.
The groom and his friends then left Adenta in a convoy towards the venue for the reception but things went bad when a vehicle, trying to overtake another, ran into the car that was conveying the couple.
The groom, who was seriously injured in the process, was rushed to the Legon Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
