President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is mourning the death of some 34 persons including a baby under a year old, who perished in a car crash on the Accra-Takoradi road in the Central Region.

The accident occurred around 12 a.m. on Tuesday, 14 January 2020 when a Hyundai bus with registration number GN 3780 – 10 collided with a Man Diesel bus with registration number GR 5704 – 18.

“My sympathies and condolences go to all the families and loved ones of the deceased in the horrific accident on the Cape Coast-Takoradi Highway, which occurred earlier today. May their souls Rest In Peace. I also wish the injured, a speedy recovery,” Nana Akufo-Addo tweeted.

The injured passengers who survived the crash have been sent to the Cape Coast Regional Hospital.
