14 Confirmed Dead in Road Accident in the Eastern Region

Unofficial reports indicate that at least 14 people have been killed and several others injured in multiple collision at Kyekyewere near Teacher Mante on the Accra-Nsawam highway.

The accident took place at about 5:30 am local time (05:30 GMT).

“A truck veered off its lane turning left-right then hit one of the buses and hit another Bus so two buses crashed and have resulted in a lot of casualties”, an officer who is part of an emergency team deployed to the scene told Kasapa FM.

“As I speak to you know I am unable to flow because of what I have seen. Very sad scene. So far I counted about ten dead bodies. Body parts such as hands, heads, legs, are littered all over the highway”, he added.

A UTV reporter has also indicated that there are fears the death toll could rise as the injured were taken to a number of hospitals in the Ashanti, Eastern, and Greater Accra regions.

So far, no official statement has been communicated to the media which leaves the cause of the accident unknown.
