When the driver stopped midway through the journey at Assin Fosu at the request of some passengers, the deceased, who was reportedly quiet on the journey, did not get down to ease himself or stretch his legs.

As they continued their journey, a hawker who had been summoned by a passenger to buy bread realized there was something wrong with the deceased after approaching the vehicle and standing by the window. She informed the driver that the passenger appeared to be deceased.

The driver then pulled over to check on him. Fearful passengers exited the bus and boarded other buses to continue their journey, leaving only the deceased and the driver on board.
