More than 50 passengers have died following the collision of two buses in the early hours of Friday, March 22, 2019 on the Tamale-Kintampo Highway.

According to MyNewsGh.com, the accident happened at Amoma ,a village near Kintampo in the Kintampo North Municipality of the Bono East Region, along the main Kintampo-Tamale Highway.

Eyewitness say a VVIP Kia bus  with registration number GT 3915- 17  from Garu in the Upper East Region  heading towards Kumasi collided with a Grandbird bus with registration number GT 5694-18 from Accra which was heading towards Bolgantaga also in the Upper East Region.

The eyewitness said, it is unclear what might have caused the collision but it is speculated that one of the drivers might have been dozing off and run into the lane of the other from the opposite direction.

All passengers, including those onboard one of the buses which was en route from Garu and bound for Kumasi have been burnt beyond recognition when the vehicle went up in flames soon after the crash

The other bus, branded VVIP and painted red, veered into a ditch after the collision, killing dozens on board.
