One more person is reported dead in the fatal accident on the Cape Coast- Yamoransa road bringing the death toll to 16.

All fifteen passengers in an urvan bus died on the spot, Saturday night when their vehicle colided head-on with an articulated truck.

The driver of the articulated truck was also said to have died later Sunday. The only surviver of the accident is the mate of the articulated truck.

Joy News' Central regional correspondent, Richard Kojo Nyarko reported the surviver is unable to give a coherent account of the accident due to the extreme shock he appears to be in.

Eye witnesses have attributed the accident to over speeding and wrongful overtaking.

Kojo Nyarko said the bodies have been taken to the Central Region hospital morgue.

Already ten of the bodies have been identified by their wailing relatives of the deceased persons.
