27 burnt to death in Kintampo-Tamale road crash in Ghana


27 passengers have been reportedly burnt to death in an accident on the Kintampo-Tamale stretch of the highway in the Brong Ahafo region.

The accident occurred Monday morning, a police source told Starr News.

An eyewitness told Starr News the accident involved a sprinter  and Yutong buses.

“The bodies are burnt beyond recognition. It is difficult to even make them out especially to separate men from women. Both drivers are dead, one of them is still trapped under his vehicle,” he told Francis Abban on the Morning.

The sprinter, according to him, drove into the lane of the Yutong causing the accident.

It is unclear what caused the incident.
