17 people have died in a ghastly accident at Nnoboamu near Konongo in the Ashanti region.
The accident occurred when a fully loaded 207 passenger bus numbered GY 2520-13 rammed into a stationary timber truck with registration number GT874 Thursday night.
All the passengers in the 207 bus died.
Confirming the incident to Morning Starr, the divisional Police commander Superintendent Ohene Boadi Bossman said the bus may have crashed into the truck because it was packed in the middle of the road.
He said the deceased have been conveyed to the morgue while the scene is still being cleared for vehicles to pass.
