A fatal accident has left four persons dead at Kwame-Kwasi, a community on the Bole-Bamboi stretch in the Savannah Region.

The accident occurred after an ESP bus with registration number AP 7778-21 rammed into a moving trailer with registration number GR2703-P loaded with goods en route to Mali.

Eye witnesses say the driver of the ESP Bus was over speeding but failed in an attempt to overtake the Mali bound trailer killing the four onboard.
