5 persons have been confirmed dead in a tragic accident that occurred at the Winneba Junction in Central Region on Tuesday, December 27.
At least 15 persons are currently receiving treatment at the Winneba Municipal Hospital, where the health personnel confirmed the deaths.
The accident involved a Sprinter bus, which according to road safety experts was overspeeding, when the rear tyre burst causing the bus to somersault, and eventually crashing.
Stephen Anokye, a road expert in detailing the cause of the accident, said, "The engine of the bus came out… this should tell you the driver was going beyond the required 100KPH and you can see the car is severely damaged."
So far, the injured are said to be in stable condition, and drivers are cautioned to be more careful during this festive season.
