The deceased have also been deposited at the same hospital’s morgue.
Eyewitness report indicates that the accident occurred at the spot where a new road speed ramp was under construction by the Ghana Highways Authority (GHA).
Narrating the incident to Prime News Ghana, an eyewitness explained that, at about 4: 15 am an Aflao-Elubo bound Yotoung which was carrying 53 passengers with registration number ‘Freedom1-15’ and a Tipper truck with registration number GE 3350-14 which was also driving from Inchaban direction to Beposo, near Assorko Essamun in the Western Region.
Upon reaching the scene where the new speed road ramp was under construction by the Ghana Highways Authority, both vehicles decided to veer off their respective lanes.
This resulted into the head-on collision between Yotoung bus carrying 53 passengers a Tipper truck.
