Kumasi-Edwira Accident Claims 23.
Some 23 passengers, who were Friday traveling from Kumasi to Edwira in a Mercedez benz 207 bus, died on the spot after their bus collided with a tipper truck loaded with stones.
According to Radio XYZ’s Ashanti Regional correspondent Isaac Bediako Justice, the tipper truck had rushed onto the road without watching out for oncoming vehicles, thereby surprising the 207 bus which was approaching at top speed.
The bus consequently crashed into the rear of the tipper truck.
Speaking to our correspondent, police said none of the passengers in the bus survived, adding that the occupant (s) of the truck had absconded before the police arrived.
