The Metro Mass Transit Limited has initiated an internal process to review its operations following the Kintampo accident which claimed over 60 lives.

The Board Chairman of the company, Leslie Tamakloe, told Joy News the probe would review the company’s corporate structure, safety procedures and maintenance schedules to establish areas for change.

He revealed these after he led a delegation to visit surviving victims of last Wednesday’s accident at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.

“We understand that other agencies in road safety will be conducting their own independent investigations, at the end of the day, we will like to compare notes,” he stated.

Last Wednesday, a Metro Mass Transit bus and a cargo truck collided head-on, on the Kintampo-Tamale road, killing 61 people.

Some of the injured survivors are currently receiving treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and other hospitals across the country.

The accident occurred when the Bolgatanga-bound Metro bus from Kumasi rammed into an oncoming cargo truck at Kintampo.

A survivor of the accident told police the bus developed faulty brakes during the journey but the bus driver failed to resolve it, however, the Metro Mass company has denied this account.
