A ghastly accident on the Kasoa-Winneba road involving a Luxury Bus and a Mercedes Benz Sprinter Bus has left not less than six people dead and several others severely injured. The fatal Kasoa-Winneba road accident occurred at the Gomoa-Buduatta junction in the Central Region at about 10:45pm on Thursday, March 17 while it was raining heavily, ASP John Adika of Ojobi District Police confirmed.
According to eyewitnesses, the Mercedes Benz Sprinter bus with registration number GE-5526-15 which was heading from Takoradi to Accra collided with a Yutong bus with registration number GT-6454-10, heading from Accra to Takoradi.
The Sprinter driver was said to have lost control of his vehicle which eventually led to the head-on collision with the Yutong bus. Two men and four women who were on board the Sprinter bus were reported to have died on the spot.
Fire Service officers had to cut through parts of the Sprinter bus to get some seriously injured passengers out, an eyewitness, Kwabena Prince told Adom News. He added that the drivers of the two vehicles might not survive because of the severity of their injuries.
Meanwhile, injured victims of the Kasoa-Winneba road accident are currently receiving treatment at the Winneba Government Hospital.
