At least 30 burnt to death in Kintampo Highway accident

A fatal accident on the Kintampo-Tamale highway in the Bono East Region has left at least 30 people burnt to death, Monday morning.

Adom News’ correspondent Wiafe Akenteng who is at the scene says those involved, include women and children.

According to him, a Yutong bus reportedly collided with a mini Sprinter bus with registration number AS 1801-18 causing both vehicles to go up in flames.
