71 bus passengers have died in Ghana’s 2nd largest city in a fatal head on crash that happened overnight.

A fully loaded cargo truck collided with a passenger bus at midnight in one of the most deadliest road accident of the year.

The head-on crash, which left 13 people seriously injured, occurred 420 km (260 miles) north of the capital Accra when a Metro Mass Transit coach bound for the northern town of Tamale from the city of Kumasi hit a truck loaded with boxes of tomatoes, regional police chief Maxwell Atingane said.

A mechanical failure was blamed for the head on collision that shook the entire West African country today.
