State-owned ambulance conveying victims of the Kintampo Waterfalls disaster to Konfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, was involved in car crash, killing the driver in the process.

The ambulance with registration number GV 375-12 was carrying the victims in critical condition to the hospital when the accident occurred at a farming community called Gwenewoho.

Eyewitnesses told mynewsgh.com that the accident occurred Tuesday morning around 4am.

According to them, the Ambulance driver attempted to overtake a vehicle in front of him but unfortunately he hit a stationary vehicle in front of him and another vehicle behind him smashed the ambulance against the stationary car.

It would be recalled that a large tree fell down at the Kintampo waterfalls on Sunday, killing about 18 people and leaving over 30 others injured.

The injured were receiving treatment at the Kintampo and Techiman General Hospitals.

However, those in critical condition were being transferred to the Konfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in the ambulance, which was involved in the Tuesday dawn accident.

Many of the dead of the Waterfalls were presumed to be students of the Wenchi Methodist Secondary School who were at the falls on an excursion.

It is believed that a storm caused the huge tree to drop from the top of the waterfalls down on the revelers swimming below.
