A school bus that was carrying 30 children to school was affected in an accident at Agona Swedru in the Central Region Tuesday morning.
There were no casualties.
A KIA Combi bus with registration number GW 2495-11, which belongs to the Christ the King Preparatory School at Agona Swedru, hit with another vehicle.
The brakes of the bus reportedly declined and arose in the accident.
The bus clashed with a Toyota Corolla Saloon car with registration number GW 2893-14 at the school’s crossing on the Ahmadiyya hospital road and landed on its side and also severely damaged the fence wall of the Adeyhe Assembly of the Apostolic Church Ghana.
Inhabitants around and passers-by rushed to the scene and rescued the pupils.
They were taken to the Swedru Government Hospital for medication.
The Station Officer at the Swedru Divisional Unit of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department of the Ghana Police Service, Chief Inspector Mahama Iddrisu, told Graphic Online that the schoolchildren sustained minor injuries and all of them have been treated and discharged.
However, he noted that the driver of the Toyota Corolla sustained severe injuries and is currently on admission at the same hospital.
