A bus driver and one passenger have been confirmed dead after two VIP buses crashed in the Eastern Region.

The two buses – headed from Accra to Kumasi to Accra- crashed when they attempted to carry out an overtaking at the Akyem-Adukrom stretch of the Asiakwa-Kyebi road.

According to the Kyebi MTTD Commander DSP Henry Agyemang, the main Bunso – Apedwa stretch of the Accra – Kumasi highway was closed to traffic on Wednesday morning following an accident on Tuesday evening involving a petrol tanker and an Opel Cardet at Asiakwa Junction which blocked the main road.
