A fiery crash between a tank truck carrying fuel and a passenger bus Wednesday has left at least three people dead at Fumesua, on the Accra-Kumasi Highway.
Officials say at least 32 others are receiving treatment at various hospitals after sustaining injury. Firefighters deployed to the scene prevented any further disaster due to fuel spillage.
Both drivers apparently survived and are under investigation at the Ejisu Divisional Police Command, reports say.
Ejisu Municipal Chief Executive, Samuel Frimpong who was at the scene said investigations have started by the police.
“According to the municipal police commander and fire operation officer, they had a call around 1am about an accident involving a VIP bus and a gas tanker from Atuabo.
“The gas tanker was going to offload gas at Sonic gas filling station when it collided with a VIP bus from Asante Mampong heading to Accra, and on the spot two people died.
“When I went there in the morning, another person was reported dead, bringing the number to three,” Frimpong said.
