    In a report filed by Edwin Kofi Siaw, a Rhino truck with registration number GW 1364-12 loaded with bags of sachet water is said to have veered off the road and rammed into three Hyundai minibusses parked by the roadside.

    The registration numbers of the Hyundai buses are GG 2043, GT-5911-18 and GT-5175-12.

    The truck, according to the Adeiso District Police Commander, ASP Baffuor Awuah, was travelling from Nsawam towards the Asamankese direction on the Nsawam-Asamankese highway.
