Three in Serious Condition After Accident On KNUST Campus.
Three people are said to be in a serious condition after two vehicles crashed at Agriculture Faculty Junction at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi.
The accident occurred on Saturday night. Eyewitnesses explained to hypeghnewsroom.com that it happened at the traffic light interception at Agric junction when an Urvan commercial bus heading to Kotei collided with a pickup entering KNUST faculty area.
The driver’s mate made us understand that the driver and two other persons,who were sitting in the front seat were seriously injured while other passengers sustained minor injuries. [irp]
He added that passengers who sustained minor injuries were taken to the KNUST Hospital and discharged but the three aforementioned who were in critical conditions were later transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for further treatment.
“We filled up our car from Tech Junction through to Kotei and Deduako. The Traffic light had turned green so as we were moving, a pickup vehicle which was moving to KNUST campus cross us and collided. Since we were on the main road and he was taken a turn to campus, he should have slowed down but he didn’t. After the accident, we struggled to pull the driver out of the car. Those occupying the front seat were also affected.”[irp]
“When the cars collided, it affected mostly the front part of the vehicle so those in front were severely affected. We called the police and the fire service but it could a long time before they arrived here. By the time they arrived, passersby had helped to take the driver and other persons who sustained injuries, to the hospital.” [irp posts=”1591″ name=”KNUST JUNCTION:Two killed in a car crash at KNUST junction”]
