A number of passengers have been rushed to the St Patrick Hospital at Offinso after two vehicles collided at Denase near Kodie in the Ashanti Region.

A Durango car with registration number GE 9300 Y veered off its lane and collided with a sprinter with registration number AS 8472 -13.

The accident, which occurred around 11:30 am yesterday, resulted in three hours of vehicular traffic on the Kumasi-Techiman road.

The Sprinter bus was heading towards Kumasi while the Durango was heading towards the Offinso side of the road.
