A government delegation will on Thursday Jan 16, 2020 visit survivors of the Komenda road accident which claimed the lives of 34 persons and injured several others on Tuesday.
Thursday’s visit by the delegation is to afford the ministers an opportunity to engage with the National Road Safety Authority in the Central Region on ways to ensure greater compliance with transport safety regulations especially among commercial road users.
The move comes after President Akufo-Addo in a message commiserated with families of the victims and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
Tuesday’s accident involved two Yutong buses which had a head-on collision on the Dompoase Junction near Komenda Junction.
According to the police, the red Yutong bus travelling from Accra to Takoradi tried to overtake the vehicle in front of it and ended up running into the oncoming white Takoradi to Accra bound Yutong bus.
Preliminary investigations have blamed the incident on over-speeding by the drivers of the two passenger vehicles.
