In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh said the accident could have been avoided if the drivers had exercised a little restraint.

“Yesterday [Monday] at about 8:00 in the evening, a suspect driver, Osei Asante, was in charge of a Toyota Hiace Bus with registration number ER 1058-16 from Kasoa to Koforidua, with passengers on board, and upon reaching a village called Kyekyewere near Suhum, he tried overtaking a leading vehicle and in the process his car veered into the opposite lane and crashed into the passenger side of  a Sprinter bus with registration number AW 1329-14, which also had passengers on board, and was heading to Accra from Kumasi.”

He encouraged passengers to call drivers to order if they are driving carelessly or flouting rules on the road since every life matters.
