The driver of the vehicle who suffered some severe injury is said to be responding to treatment while the majority of the students have been treated and discharged.
Kofi Atiso, who is the Central Volta Zonal Secretary told Citi News that about 25 students were in the bus when the incident occurred.
“The driving was struggling with the gear and the car started coming backwards. The car somersaulted and by God’s intervention they got stuck someone. There was some bruises and minor injuries but when the chairman and executive visited them, most of them had been visited and discharged. The driver’s injury was critical but he is responding to treatment.”
