One of three buses that KNUST Engineering students were travelling in got invovled in a horrible accident on the Accra-Kumsi road, on their way back to campus in Kumasi after a field trip to Accra.
The accident is said to have occurred when the driver of the students’ bus tried to overtake a petrol tanker in front of them. The driver, upon realising the overtake was not possible, tried to retire behind the tanker again, which had already started slowing down to allow for the overtake. This resulted in a collision between the students’ bus and the petrol tanker which sent students flying in their seats.
Fortunately, no deaths were recorded. Students however attained various degrees of injuries.
The injured students were rushed to the nearby Juaso District hospital, and later transferred to the KNUST hospital for better treatment
