Three in critical condition after crash on Odumase-Konongo road
Three persons have been severely injured after a crash at Konongo-Odumase in the Ashanti Region on the Accra-Kumasi highway.
Four vehicles were involved in the accident; a Toyota Scion, Toyota Stanbic, Metro Mass bus, and a mini cargo truck.
According to the police report, the incident occurred after a Metro Mass Transit hit two vehicles in its lane after one of the drivers stopped abruptly in the middle of the road.
“According to eyewitnesses, the Scion bus suddenly saw a motorbike in the middle of the road, so he stopped to move the motorbike to pave way for him,” the report said.
The abrupt stop caused the other cars to crash into the vehicle.
The injured persons were rushed to the Konongo-Odumase Government Hospital.
About seven of them who sustained minor injuries have been treated and discharged while three are still on admission at the hospital.
The police urged all drivers “to be careful when driving especially as we are approaching election and Christmas festivities.”
