Fourteen of the 19 persons who survived a fatal accident on September 7 at Eduagyei on the Takoradi-Cape Coast Road in which 16 people died, have been discharged from hospital.

They were on admission at the Central Regional Hospital, Cape Coast, for various degrees of injury sustained when a Mercedes Benz bus on which they were travelling crashed into an articulated truck. Two others, the drivers of the bus and articulated truck, Messrs Kwame Donkor and Fuseini Ali, have been referred to the Effia-Nkwanta and Okomfo-Anokye Teaching hospitals respectively, for further treatment.

The officer in charge of the Elmina office of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) Superintendent Haywood, who disclosed this in a telephone interview with the GNA on Friday, dismissed speculations that the bus driver had also lost his life.

He said some of the discharged victims who sustained serious fractures have also been advised to seek further treatment at the Koforidua hospital, famed for bone mending.

According to Superintendent Haywood,13 of the 16 persons who died in the accident, have been identified as Gobo Gariba, 32, Sueyari Gan 24, Abdoulai Asinoo 27, Issifou Zazi 37, Yousif Omar 28, all Ivorians, and Agnes Arthur, 32 and Esther Ansah, 32, both Ghanaians.

The others, all of whom are Ghanaians are; Mary Abaka 40, Gladys Mensah 29, Stella Mensah two- and- a- half, Samuel Eshun 34, Alfred Nii Afla Sackey, 38 and Joycelyn Essien, a two-year old toddler. He said the remaining three, all male adults, are yet to be identified.

According to him, the police are still investigating to establish the cause of the accident which occurred when the driver of the Accra-bound Takoradi bus, lost control of the steering and crashed into the on-coming articulated truck.
