Three people died on the spot Monday morning when an articulator truck collided with a Cape Coast bound State Transport Company bus about 100 meters from Apam Junction on the Accra-Winneba road.

An eye witness, Ekow told Joy FM a speeding articulator driver was all to blame for the latest carnage on the road as he lost control at a rumbled stretch of the road constructed to check over speeding.

After losing control of the wheels, the articulator ran into the bus, whose driver had tried in vain to avoid the collision. The roof of the bus was completely ripped off, while a saloon car following the bus also ran into it.

The accident occurred shortly before 6am.

Several passengers on the bus have been rushed to the Winneba Government Hospital while the dead have been conveyed to the mortuary.

The latest accident comes barely four days after another accident, also said to have been caused by two articulator trucks, claimed 41 lives on the Kasoa-Winneba road in the Central Region.
