A TWO year old girl and two other people have been killed after a Tiper Truck and a Splinter Bus collided head-on at Soko in the Ashanti Region on Monday.
The innocent girl’s identity is not known but the two other deceased people have been identified as drivers of the two mangled vehicles that were involved in the crash.
They are one Kofi Juma, 37 years old, said to be in possession of the Splinter Bus, registered GT 4013-14 and Kodua, driver of the truck, registered, WR 1635-A.
The two vehicles, which crashed head on at Soko, aside claiming three human lives, also caused life-threatening injuries to about six people that were in the splinter bus.
The bodies of the trio have since been deposited at the morgue at the Saint Patrick’s in Offinso. The injured people are also receiving treatment in the same medical facility.
Eye witnesses informed the THUNDER that the Tiper Truck was from Tetrem to Boaman and the Splinter Bus was also coming from the opposite direction.
They said, perhaps, one of the speeding vehicles veered from its lane to the other lane, and that resulted in the dangerous head-on collision, which claimed three lives.
The sad incident attracted scores of curious people to the accident scene, most of whom were openly shedding tears for the dead. The police are still investigating the crash.
The Assembly member for Soko Abroma Electoral Area, Akwasi Clement, who was called to the scene and, in turn, called the National Ambulance Service.
He said there was the need for drivers to be careful on that particular stretch due to the danger there.
