Four people are in critical condition after an accident that happened on the Breman Essiam-Nyamebekyere to Assin Fosu road in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District of the Central Region.
The vehicles involved were a taxi with registration number GT 7540 U which was moving from Breman Essiam to Hasowodze, and a Benz Benz Sprinter bus on its way from Assin Fosu to Accra.
Eyewitnesses, narrating the incident to Kasapa FM News’ Yaw Boagyan, said that the Sprinter occupied a large portion of the road in a sharp curve, which made it impossible for oncoming vehicles to drive past. Thus the taxi, which was coming from the opposite direction, decided to drive into the bush to avoid a head-on collision with the Sprinter, but lost control and somersaulted a few times.
All three passengers and the driver were rushed to the Ajumako Government hospital for treatment.
Residents say that particular stretch of the road is accident-prone, as about three weeks ago, a headmaster was involved in a serious accident that cost him his leg.
