Assin-Fosu (C/R), July
21, GNA – A fuel tanker carrying fuel from Tema to Obuasi went up in flames
when it ran into a Metro Mass Transit (MMT) at Assin Dansame -Brasiako on the
Assin Fosu – Kumasi highway on Wednesday afternoon.

No death was recorded
but the driver and the mate of the fuel tanker sustained various degrees of
injuries and have been sent to the New Edubiase Government Hospital for
treatment, an eye witnesses told the Ghana News Agency.

The MMT bus with
registration number GW 3373-Z was heading towards Obuasi from Takoradi but
slowed down upon reaching Assin-Brasiako in an attempt to avoid multiples of
potholes on the road.

The fuel tanker which
was on top speed unfortunately failed its brakes and ran into the bus,
somersaulted and caught fire after a few minutes.

Billows of thick smoke
covered the entire accident scene and created chaotic traffic flow impeding the
movement of vehicles along the busy highway.

However, Personnel of
the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) at Assin Praso arrived on time to douse
the fire.

The Police have since
been at the accident scene to control vehicular traffic flow and security.
