3 Persons Die in a Gory Accident on Accra- Kumasi Highway
Three persons are feared dead in a gory accident near Fumesua in the Ashanti Region on the Accra-Kumasi Highway.
The accident occurred around 12:15 am on Wednesday, September 21.
Reports say a VIP bus traveling from Asante Mampong to Accra clashed with a gas tanker.
The General Manager of VIP, Adakabre Frimpong Manso, confirmed the incident to the media.
Mr. Manso revealed that two persons died on the spot with the third death recorded later.
He explained that the gas tanker was going to offload gas at Sonic gas filling station when it veered off its lane into that of the VIP bus.
The VIP bus driver, upon sensing danger, attempted to swerve to safety on the left side and crashed into concrete pavement.
This caused the side of the VIP bus to hit the back of the tanker, resulting in death and several injuries.
Some of the accident victims, through the help of the emergency services; police, ambulance, and the fire service were taken to the Ejisu Government Hospital for treatment while some were brought to Accra for treatment.
