An aircraft landing at Kotoka airport at Accra, Ghana appears to have overshot the runway on landing after its flight from Nigeria. The airport and runway is near some recently-built hotels and high-rise buildings. The Ghana Defense Ministry is also near the runway.
reports the Ghana Fire Service spokesman, Billy Anaglate, as saying;
"What happened is that the Allied (Air) Cargo plane, actually I was told, was traveling from Nigeria to Ghana. At the landing it was short of the boundary, and it went off onto the road side. It crashed into a bus that was bound for Accra,"
All ten people on board the bus were killed in the tragic accident. Airport and police officials declined to comment on the cause of the accident, as did Allied Air Cargo's offices in Lagos, Nigeria.
