Some nine people have perished in a Sunday dawn road accident that occurred at Asuboi.
They were travelling on a Hyundai Universe commercial bus with registration number AK 324-22 to Accra from Sunyani when the vehicle head-on collided with a faulty articulated truck parked off the road at Asuboi on the Accra-Kumasi highway.
The truck was carrying a forty-footer freight loaded with lumber.
Preliminary findings of the police suggest the bus driver was sleeping behind the wheel and also failed to observe traffic rules.
Other passengers who survived have been rushed to the hospital for treatment.
