Accra, Ghana - Eleven passengers died on Saturday when the bus on which they were travelling was involved in an accident on the Accra-Cape Coast Highway west of the capital, police said.
Central Region Commander of Motor Traffic Transport Unit of the Ghana Police Service, Assistant Superintendent of Police John Paul, said the crash occurred when the bus was involved in a head-on collision with an on-coming tipper truck.
Only six persons, including an eight-year-old boy, survived, radio reports quoted eyewitnesses as saying.
Mr Paul said the bus, which was overtaking another vehicle, crashed into the on-coming truck loaded with sand.
The Accra-Cape Coast highway is one of the most dangerous in the country in terms of accidents.
