Road Accident

Is this normal, God have mercy on as

According to the police, upon reaching a section of the highway at Akyem Asafo, the VIP bus driver encountered another Kia Grandbird bus that was heading towards Kumasi that had undertaken a wrongful overtaking.

In an attempt to avoid a head-on collision, the VIP bus veered off the road but the oncoming bus that had undertaken the wrongful overtaking could not anticipate the action of the VIP bus, also veered off the road, and subsequently collided with the VIP bus.

The bodies of the deceased have been deposited at Suhum Government Hospital mortuary for preservation, identification, and autopsy.

According to the police, the accident took place near Kaukrady, in Nellyadi at around 11.30pm.

Sparks were noticed initially and soon both the vehicles were completely gutted.

The driver who was driving a Nissan Urvan mini bus loaded with passengers, courageously knocked down the two suspected robbers as they tried to escape on a motorbike. However, in the process, his vehicle lost balance, veered off the road and landed on its side.

Some of the passengers on board the trotro who sustained injuries were sent to the Akawe Government Hospital, near Mccarthy Hill, while others, including the alleged robbers, were taken to the Police Hospital.
