According to reports, the Sprinter mini bus with registration number AS 881-14 was carrying about 15 passengers when the accident occurred.

Sources had it that one of the rear tyres of the vehicle burst on reaching Adaamanso and the vehicle somersaulted several times before landing in a ditch, killing the three on the spot.

An eyewitness, Richard Alex Frimpong, told DAILY GUIDE that the deceased were two males, including an eight year old boy, and a female.
