At least three people have died when the car they were travelling in crashed at Bakpa Adzani on the Sogakope-Adidome road after one of its tyres burst Saturday.
Several others who sustained various degrees of injury are on admission at the Adidome Government Hospital, Comboni, St. Anthony’s Hospital at Dzodze and the Volta Regional Hospital in Ho.
Joy News’ Volta Regional Correspondent, Ivy Sertordzi reported the Mercedes Benz Sprinter with registration number AS 6874-10 was heading to Sogakope from Accra when one of its tyres burst. It had 22 passengers.
The driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle immediately. The car hit the median and veered off the road into the nearby bush.
Sogakope Police Chief, ASP Eric Opata confirmed the incident to Myjoyonline.com, but said the police are yet to interview the survivors to corroborate the accounts.
But the information collection will be done later because the health of the survivors is paramount, he said, adding it will not delay.
