The Liberia registered sprinter was moving in the opposite direction of the Assemblies of God church bus that was heading to Asankragwa with some church members from Accra.

An eyewitness tells Connect News, the sprinter had overtaken many vehicles on top speed and collided with the bus whilst negotiating a curve at the New Apostolic Junction at Kojokrom, a suburb of Takoradi.

“The yellow bus had loaded church members who went for camp meeting in Accra. Whilst returning to Asankragwa, it collided with the sprinter vehicle. The driver with the Assemblies of God bus was unstable when I arrived here,” Kofi Amoah, an eyewitness indicated.

Four persons, all males, who were on the Liberian sprinter bus have been confirmed dead with many others in critical condition.

Passengers in the Ghanaian bus sustained minor injuries and have been sent to the hospital for treatment.

It took the intervention of the Ghana National Fire Service and Police to assist with the situation.
