One more victim of the bus crash involving workers of the West African Mills Company (WAMPCO) has died in a hospital in the Central region.

It brings the death toll in the bus crash to three after two employees of the company died early Thursday morning when their Mercedes Benz sprinter bus collided with a military ambulance.

Witnesses say the Sprinter bus loaded with passengers from Takoradi heading towards Accra collided with the ambulance at Komenda Safwi, a town along the road and skidded into a nearby bush.

Central Regional correspondent Richard Kojo Nyarko confirmed the deaths and added that 15 more are in critical condition. Five others including a military man driving the ambulance have been treated and discharged.

He said doctors have described the injuries as "terrible". Some sustained severe damages in the pelvic and others have broken limbs.

A team of medical doctors have been busy attending to the injured.

Parliament has commensurated with bereaved families and accident victims on the Cape Coast Highway who were on their way to parliament to hear the Finance Minister's response to the closure of the Cocoa Processing Company.
