A cargo truck with registration number AC-179-21 has collided with bound bus at konongo in the ashanti region of Ghana.
The cargo truck was fully loaded with paper while the bus was also full of passengers traveling from accra to kumasi.
Citi fm share the story on thier twitter page this morning and information coming states that 13 souls have met their untimely death while eleven other passengers have been hospitalized.
Those hospitalized are said to be in a critical condition.
The two cars collided. The cargo truck fell on its side but the bound bus somersaulted several times.
As usual when accident occurs individual tend to play ‘the blame game’.
Social media users shared their opinion on who to blamed for the multiple accidents occuring on our road.
“It's the government,the general Ghanaian citizens have no clue as to how to end this road accident. It's every one for himself or herself.” @kojobentil commented.
Another user with the name @inkredible_b also shared his opinion : “the month of October has also started taking its numbers of road accidents. The careless of these drivers eerh ,if you are a passenger and a driver is driving the car as if he wants to fly with it,speak up. Most often,passengers just keep mute and watch these senseless drivers anyhow.”
One exceptional comment which touched me was that of @ivyprosper's. She rather gave solution to curb rampant accidents on our road instead of the normal ‘blame game’. She said: “We need to eliminate single carriageway road. It will reduce unsafe Lane changes that causes head-on collision. We also need better enforcement of the speeding and unsafe Lane changes,unsafe overtaking on the road.”
Africa need visionary leaders to steer the affair of the continent.
Meanwhile, data from the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service reveals that 1,927 lives have been lost to road accidents from January to August this year.
