Accident, 6 People perish at Apirede in the Eastern Region

Six people have died on the spot in an accident that happened at Apirede mountain in the Okere District- Eastern Region on Friday, 7 October 2022 around 1:30 Pm.

The accident involved a Benz sprinter bus with registration number GY 1570-13 carrying some passengers from Koforidua attending a funeral at Aflao.

According to an eyewitness who is also a driver named TT, he signaled the driver who was overseeding to reduce the speed due to the nature of the road, but he ignored it.

“The driver should be blamed; he was over speeding, and I told him to reduce it, but he did not even look at me, so I was not surprised it happened. The car somersaulted severally” he stated.

The driver on reaching a sharp curve allegedly lost control of the wheel due to the speed at which the vehicle was traveling at and the vehicle somersaulted in the process before landing into the ditch.

Meanwhile, other passengers who were badly injured are currently on admission at the Yilo Krobo Government Hospital in Somanya.

About a month ago, students from the University of Education Winneba who were on an educational trip had an accident on the Apirede mountain which claimed four lives.
