Two people have been confirmed dead in another accident at Akumadan in the Offinso North Constituency of the Ashanti Region.

The accident occurred on Saturday, March 2, 2024.

According to the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), the accident was caused by a truck carrying a cement mixer that was navigating from the Nkenkensu road toward the Local Government University construction site.

Information gathered also indicates that the cement mixer, seemingly not securely fastened, unexpectedly dislodged and collided with an oncoming Ssangyong bus with registration number AS 9880-12.

The impact of the collision resulted in the death of the two victims who are yet to be identified.

Emergency response teams were promptly dispatched to the scene to manage the aftermath and attend to any injured individuals.

Authorities are now investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident, including the adherence to safety protocols during the transportation of the cement mixer.

This follows the death of seven other people including three children, after a tipper truck ran over a tricycle (Aboboyaa) at Akumadan in the Ashanti Region on Thursday, February 29, 2024.
