10 Persons Die In Fatal Accident On The Kasoa Winneba Road
Ten persons have also been confirmed dead while the injured are receiving treatment at the Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital, after two Yutong buses with the registration numbers GN 4742-17 and then GS 6262-19, collided head on at the Gomoa Mampong on the Accra Cape Coast highway. The accident occurred at around
3;30 on Sunday, August 22, 2021, after the Yutong bus with the registration number GN 4741-10 which was also headed for Accra from Takoradi in a bid to overtake a vehicle, then collided with the other Yutong bus with registration number GS 6262-19, which was headed for Ivory Coast from Accra. Municipal Fire Commander for
Winneba, DO1 Henry Aseidu, indicated that some of the victims have been discharged while those who are on admission are in critical condition. We had a call from our regional headquarters that a very fatal accident had occurred on the Gomoa Mampong stretch and we also quickly rushed to the scene. What we gathered was that
two Yutong buses were involved, and one of the buses was heading to the Accra from Takoradi, while the other bus which was carrying some Ivorians was headed to Ivory Coast from Accra. It was fatal, and we had to take our time to collect the bodies. About ten people have been found dead while the rest are receiving treatment
at the Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital, DO1 Mr Henry Aseidu said. An eyewitness, Emmanuel Quaicco, who was on one of the buses, said their bus was trying to overtake another car when he collided with another Yutong bus resulting in the accident. I was on one of the Yutong buses with the registration number GN 4741-10 heading to Accra, and when we also got to the Gomoa
Mampong our driver then decided to overtake a vehicle ahead of him which resulted in the accident. A little boy who was with me sustained severe injuries and another also died, Emmanuel Quaicco said. He also said some vehicles that were on the stretch too decided to help by conveying some of the dead and injured to the hospital before the fire officers and ambulance arrived after 45 minutes.
