In the early hours of today july 17, 2023, a tragic accident occurred at a location near Sekyere Kankan involving a Zhong Tong Bus with registration number GW 5546-23 which was carrying passengers from Kumasi to the Volta region. According to reports gathered from the police at the scene and some local residents, the accident was caused when the driver attempted to give way to an overtaking vehicle but unfortunately lost control, veering off the road and into the bushes. Regrettably, three individuals lost their lives in the incident, and numerous others sustained critical injuries.
I would like to commend the Ghana Police and the ambulance service for their swift response in transporting the injured passengers to the hospital. Their efforts deserve appreciation and recognition.
This incident serves as a reminder for all drivers to prioritize road safety and ensure the secure transportation of passengers to their intended destinations.
