At Least 60 Killed in Ghana Bus Collision

At least 60 people have been confirmed dead on Friday in a head-on collision between two buses in Ghana, police said, in the latest deadly crash on the country’s roads.

The incident, which happened in the early hours of Friday between 1:30 and 2:00 at Ampomakrom, also lead to 40 others passengers sustaining various degrees of injuries, with some in critical conditions.

“The vehicles were travelling in separate directions when the collision occurred,” police commander Joseph Antwi Gyawu told AFP.

According to Otec News’ Waudu Ishaku reporting from the scene said the accident happened when the buses with registration number GT 3915- 17 VVIP Akai buss loaded from Garu heading towards Kumasi collided with a Grand Bird bus with registration number GT 5694-18 loaded from Accra and heading towards Bolgatanga.

The Tata bus has burnt into ashes, including some passengers and some others could not be indentified as results of the shredded bodies.

“Reports so far gathered indicate that the driver of the VVIP buss loaded from Garu heading towards Kumasi, who has been burnt to death was dozing, however, some of the passengers alerted him to park off and rest for a while but he declined, leading to the cause of the accident,” he said.

“The police and Fire Service personnel are at the scene to control traffic,” he added.
Others in critical conditions have been transported to Jema, Kintampo and Techiman hospitals for emergency treatments.
