Personnel from the Ghana Police Service, Ambulance, and National Disaster Management Organization were at the scene to rescue the victims to the Nsawam and Suhum Government Hospitals. The bodies have been conveyed to the morgue.

“The articular truck fully loaded with goods had a burst tyre, according to an eyewitness, while descending a hill. The Truck veered off its lane turning left-right then hit one of the buses and hit another Bus so two buses crashed and has resulted in a lot of casualties. As I speak to you know I am unable to flow because of what I have seen. Very sad scene. So far I counted about ten dead bodies,” one of the rescue officers Kwadwo Minta told Starr News.
