Ashanti Region: 3 killed, scores in hospital after Offinso-Anyinasusu road accident


At least three people have been killed while survivors have been left injured in an accident at Anyinasusu in the Offinso South Municipality of the Ashanti Region.

The accident which occurred on Tuesday (21 May) just after 11 p.m., involved a Yutong bus from Kumasi to Gaaru, colliding with a Rhino vehicle. The three people were declared dead on the spot.

Assemblyman for Anyinasusu Ibrahim Yogo who confirmed the incident to Asaase News blamed the lack of speed bumps on the road.

“The speeding bus embarked on an overtaking colliding with the truck which was carrying mangoes at the time. The three victims were discovered dead during a rescue mission while the others survived with various degrees of injury. They are currently receiving treatment at the St. Patrick’s Government Hospital. The bodies of the deceased have also been deposited at the same hospital for preservation and identification”, Yogo narrated.

“The accident occurred in a neighbouring town close to my electoral area. Our road in recent times has now become a death trap due to a lack of speed rumps. And so, we plead with authorities to build speed rumps on the adjoining communities to avoid such crashes”, he stated.

The Offinso highway, a transatlantic stretch, connects Ghana to its neighbours up north. Concerns have been raised over the increasing cases of road carnages with calls from stakeholders to intensify education and enforce road traffic regulations on that stretch.
