Injured passengers have been rushed to the Kintampo Government Hospital and other nearby health facilities for immediate medical attention.
A VVIP Kia bus traveling towards Kumasi collided with a Grandbird bus that was heading towards Bolgantaga.
According to MyNewsGh.com, the accident happened in Amoma, a village near Kintampo in the Kintampo North Municipality of the Bono East Region.
The eyewitness said, it is unclear what might have caused the collision but it is speculated that one of the drivers might have been dozing off and a result, the bus veered into the lane of traffic headed in the opposite direction.
The Grandbird bus was reported to have caught fire immediately after the collision, burning passengers onboard.
Some passengers were reported to have been trapped in one of the buses and have been rescued from the accident scene to various hospitals within the Kintampo for emergency medical attention.
