According to reports, about five (5) of the severely injured passengers were referred to the Holy Family Hospital at Techiman while the others recieved treatment at the Kintampo Municipal Hospital.

These tragedic accident occured when a Mercedes Benz Sprinter which was heading from Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region to Sunyani suddenly collided with a Massey Ferguson tractor .

According to an eye witness, the Massey Ferguson tractor which was ahead of the Mercedes Benz Sprinter had a sudden tyre burst.

This suicidal situation caused the driver if the tractor to loose control and crossed the Sprinter.

The driver if the sprinter bus also tried to save the situation by dodging the tractor but couldn't succeed due to its tough speed.

The sprinter bus veered of its lane and crushed with a very big mahogany tree along the road causing this this tragedic accident which has claimed the lives of two persons.

The dead bodies which were not identified has been conveyed to morgue at the Kintampo Municipal Hospital whilst the other 30 passengers who were seriously injured have been admitted at the Kintampo Municipal Hospital for treatment.
