The Benz bus is said to have skidded off the road into the bush after it made slight contact with the Toyota SUV.
The bus landed on its side after the accident, causing tens of injuries, including fractures.
Among the injured were five students, including three female students of the Edinaman SHS in Elmina.
Two of the female students have reportedly been referred to Central Regional Hospital in Cape Coast for treatment, while the third has been admitted to a hospital in Winneba.
