He said while on the Techiman road, he saw another bus, coming from the North, speeding towards their lane.

He said although their driver tried to veer off a bit to create space for the approaching driver, it wasn’t enough as the approaching bus collided with theirs.

According to him, he could barely hear anything after the accident until he found himself lying outside the bus with people screaming for help.

Akorsah said he tried to locate his master, the driver, but found out he was already dead.

Many people were reported dead last Friday, March 22, 2019 following separate road accidents in two regions.
