An Accra to Wa bound O.A. bus with registration number GE – 4608 – 14 which left Accra at about 7pm on Thursday 29th April, 2021 got involved in a fatal accident at about 10:30pm on the Nkawkaw by-pass road.

According to eyewitness account, the O.A. bus which was decending at high speed from the Nkawkaw direction was crossed from nowhere by a heavily loaded charcoal cargo truck with registration number GW – 4140 – 21 from the Konongo direction who had apparently missed his way and used the one-way road up to a point and decided to make U-turn on the road and while doing the illegal U-turn, the fully loaded O.A. ran into it .

In an attempt to swerf the cargo truck, the bus skidded off the road and summersaulted into a very deep pit. It took about 1 hour 30mn after the accident before the arrival of the police and about 2hr for the GNFS and an ambulances to arrive. Eyewitness at the scene lamented that the death of the pregnant lady was largely as a result of the delay in getting help.

The about 60yr old cargo truck driver and mate who had bolted into the bush for fear of attack, emerged from the bush after the police had come and shouted for them to come. Both drivers survived and are in the full grips of the police
