Our source indicated that the accident involved a Sprinter which was moving from Bolgatanga to Sunyani when a tractor which was plying the route had its tyre removed and dashed under the sprinter which was moving on top speed.

The driver of the Sprinter is said to have lost control of the steering and therefore veered off the road into the bush and as a result crashed into a tree.

Two passengers out of a total of thirty-seven died on the spot whiles three others were rushed to the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman for treatment.
