One Person Dead, Ten Others Injured In Car Crash On Accra Cape Coast Highway
One person has been confirmed dead, while ten others have sustained various degrees of injuries after a Metro Mass Transit bus collided with a Toyota Corolla car on the Accra Cape Coast road on Saturday, September 11, 2021. The bus had registration, number GS 2614-17 and was also headed to the Accra from Takoradi while the
Toyota Corolla with the registration number GV 22-14 was also heading to the Mankessim from Accra. The incident occurred at the Ekumfi Ekwamkrom section of the Accra Cape Coast highway. Eyewitnesses say the Toyota Corolla also made a wrong overtaking in a sharp curve and collided with the Metro Mass Transit bus. Our
driver really tried his best to avoid the Corolla, but it was quite impossible. If not for the Metro Mass Transit bus, we would have all died. My friends and I were seated here when the incident happened. We also realised the Corolla was speeding. So when it made the sharp curve, it could not break in time when the driver realised he
was also about to collide with the Metro Mass Bus. The driver of the saloon car died instantly after the crash, while ten passengers in the Metro Mass Transit bus sustained various injuries. The injured persons are also receiving treatment at the Mankessim Roman Catholic Hospital, while the body of the deceased has also been deposited at Saltpond mortuary for preservation and autopsy.
