In Ghana, an accident involving two public transport buses has claimed the lives of at least 60 people. Police said, each bus was carrying over fifty passengers.
The accident took place at early hours today in a town called Ampoma in the newly created Bono East region.
One of Ghana’s biggest privately owned long distance bus companies, VVIP, was involved in the crash. The buses are said to have engaged in a head-on collision on the Kintampo Techiman road. One of the buses caught fire after the incident, worsening the situation.
Rescue efforts are underway. The road affected is one of the important routes connecting two parts of the country.
