Scores of passengers are feared dead following a head-on collision involving two buses on the Techiman – Kintampo road on Friday.

Eyewitnesses say one of the buses caught fire with the other seriously mangled.

Health officials say at least 28 people are currently receiving treatment at a health facility with one confirmed dead at the same facility.

“We’ve treated about 28 people and one has expired,” a health official Kwame Arhin told Francis Abban on Morning Starr Friday, 22 March 2019.

“Seven of them are in critical condition and four have been referred. Most of them have head injuries, lacerations and bruises on the hand, legs, neck and all over,” he said.

He said most of the passengers may have died on the spot.

The police are yet to confirm the number of casualties.
