At least 60 people have died in a bus crash in Ghana’s Bono East region on Friday, according to reports.
A head-on collision involving two vehicles took place on the Kintampo-Techiman highway near Kintampo.
Fire crews were called to the scene after one of the two buses went up in flames, according to the country’s TV3 news channel.
Police told the channel surviving passengers, some in critical condition, had been taken to three different hospitals for treatment.
Kintampo fire chief Ankomah Twene told TV3 that preliminary investigations suggested one of the bus drivers may have been dozing while driving on the road.
According to AFP, at least 60 died in the crash.
The Kintampo-Techiman highway is one of the mains routes in the central Ghanian region.
