The driver was forced to stop and some passengers in a run for their lives had to do so by jumping through the windows.

However, the good news is all the passenger survived the scare unhurt.

Although the Ghana Fire Service was called to intervene, the witness said it took them more than 30 minutes to get to the scene. But a fire officer explained that the call went to the headquarters in Accra before it was transferred to their division for action to be taken.
