Five school children feared dead in a gory accident on Adrobaa-Techire stretch

About five school children are reportedly dead and several others injured in a tragic accident which happened on the Techire-Adrobaa road in the Tano North Municipality of the Ahafo Region, in early hours of Friday.

Sompa FM learnt the accident happened around 0745 hours when the Techire DS Elites Academy School bus carrying the children developed a mechanical fault, fell into a ditch and somersaulted.

Many of the injured children are said to be in critical condition, responding to treatment at the Duayaw-Nkwanta St. John of God Hospital, while the bodies of the deceased had since been deposited at the hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

Mr. Addai Yeboah, the Techire Youth Chairman, who confrimed the story, told Sompa the driver of the bus had gone to pick some of the school children from Adrobaa and on their way back to Techire the bus developed mechnical fault and the driver lost control in the process.

At the time of filing this report, Sompa gathered some parents had rushed to the hospital to identify their children.

Efforts to contact Mr. Desmond Suaka, the Headmaster of the school on his mobile phone were unsuccessful as he failed to pick the calls, however, our reporter at scene reported that some of the students who were unhurt were also rushed to the hospital for treatment to be administered to them
