Thirteen persons are feared dead after their vehicle fell into a ditch

and somersaulted several times on the Bole Bamboi road in the Northern

Region on Thursday.

The crash involved a commercial vehicle said to be traveling from

Karba to Techiman in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Bole Police commander, ASP Eric Awiadem, who confirmed the incident to

Joy News, said “thirteen people including seven males, four females

and two children – between the ages of two and three have been

confirmed dead”.

He said the driver, instead of 15 passengers, had picked nine extra

passengers and that is suspected to be the cause of the accident.

However, when the driver was questioned by the police, he said his

front tire entered a pothole causing the vehicle to veer off the road.

Seven people including the driver are currently receiving treatment at

the Bole Government hospital.
