Thirteen people have been confirmed dead in a crash at Akwatiakrom in the Ahafo Ano South District of the Ashanti Region on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway.

The accident happened on the same stretch of road that killed Dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns two months ago. It was about four kilometres from the spot where Ebony and two others also had an accident and died.

The accident occurred between a Ford mini bus with registration number AS 7257-15, which had 15 people travelling on it and was travelling from Sunyani, capital of the Brong Ahafo region to the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, and a Benz cargo truck with registration number GR 2624-14 travelling from Kumasi to Dormaa Ahenkro.

They had a head-on collision, resulting in the death of eleven males, including the driver of the Ford, and a female passenger.

It happened around midnight when the weather was a bit foggy due to rainfall.

The police also say there are no streetlights on that stretch of road.
