Five people have been confirmed dead in a fatal accident that happened at Gomoa Adam near Gomoa Anteadze on the Kasoa – Cape Coast highway in the Central Region.

Seven others also sustained varied degrees of injuries and are on admission at Apam Hospital.

The accident involved in a Ford Transit with the Registration number GS 6031- 20 and a Toyota Hiace with the Registration Number GR 5059-20.

Fourteen passengers were on board the two vehicles. Five died on the spot and seven others are fighting for their lives at Apam Catholic Hospital.

Two survivors have been treated and discharged.

A survivor of the accident, who was a passenger in the Toyota Hiace vehicle, Mr Issah Abubakar attributed the accident to a wrongful overtaking on the part of the driver of the Ford Vehicle.

“I boarded the vehicle from Kasoa heading to Cape Coast and upon reaching a section of the road, I saw the Ford Transit wrongfully overtaking a tanker and in the process it collided with their car,” he said.

Meanwhile, the seven injured people are responding to treatment.
