In an interview, Yenbone Maambey, one of the six survivors of Monday’s dawn Kintampo road crash which claimed the lives of over 30 people has told the story of how it all happened.
“The vehicle was from Bawku to Kumasi but I joined it at Kongo with my brother in the Upper East Region heading to Techiman. Our vehicle which is the Kia Grandbird veered off its lane and run into the lane of the oncoming Sprinter Benz Bus. We were about 12 passengers on the bus but six of us escaped the deadly accident; one of the brothers who is a policeman died”, he revealed to MyNewsGh.com at the scene of the accident.
“I got out before realizing that my other brother who was a policeman was trapped in the vehicle and burnt to death among the 30 others. My cash of GHC25, 000 which I was going to use in buying some goods has also been burnt”, he added.
The Kintampo highway has become a death trap for many motorists. The better something concrete is done about the carnage on our roads, the better.
