Passengers of an Asante Mampong-Bolgatanga bound bus narrowly escaped death on Monday in a bizarre accident.
Their bus got plunged into a river along the Nakong-Tumu Road after their driver dozed off behind the wheels.
An eyewitness, Ibrahim Azumah, narrated on Accra-based Kasapa FM that:
“The driver was sleeping, carrying some passengers. I believe he was tired. He was coming from Mampong in the Ashanti region. He had to use the Wa Road to Bolga. Nobody would have realised there was a bus where he ran into. It was just God’s intervention. You can’t even see the top of the vehicle”.
“It skidded off the road into a river [course]. There is another articulated truck that has also skidded off the same road. One part of the trailer is on the road and the head is inside the bush. Authorities need to caution drivers. The road is extremely busy now”, he added.
We gathered that many people on the bus including the driver got injured and had to be transported to Navrongo for medical care.
