News reaching YEN.com.gh from an accident scene indicate that more than ten people have been confirmed dead and scores numbering above 30 have been left with various degrees of injuries after an accident near Nsawam.
According to a report by Mynewsgh.com, an Accra-bound VIP bus from Kumasi in the Ashanti region was involved in an accident at Pampaso near Nsawam in the Eastern Region leading to the casualties and injuries.
Even though the news comes as a shock, the cause of the accident is yet to be ascertained by security personnel and investigators who are currently at the scene.
It is however alleged that the vehicle which was involved in the accident veered off the main road into the bush causing the untimely deaths and injuries.
According to the report, there were calls for ambulances from Accra and Koforidua to help convey the injured people to nearby health institutions considering the huge number involved.
According to eyewitnesses however, the driver of the said vehicle is said to have suddenly lost control of the vehicle as he tried to overtake another vehicle and in the process, veered off into the bush leading to the accident.
Bodies of the deceased persons have been deposited at the Nsawam Government Hospital pending further investigations into the crash.
