Nine people have been confirmed dead in a fatal motor accident which occurred hours ago on the Sunyani-Brekum road.

Police say some of the dead were burnt to death beyond recognition while those who survived are currently receiving medical treatment at nearby hospitals at Sunyani.

According to the police in Sunyani, two passenger vehicles involved in the accident collided after drivers of the vehicles lost control of their cars due to a smoky weather condition on the road.


The boss of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) for Sunyani, Chief Inspector Kingsley Dompreh, told Citi News the incident occurred around 2:30 pm on Tuesday.

He added that due to the seriousness of the accident it is likely the death toll may rise.
