Four people have been burnt to death following an accident at Yapei in the Savanna Region.

The deceased, three males and one female, were occupants of a Toyota Matrix vehicle travelling from Kumasi to the Northern Region.

The saloon car with registration number GE 4126 – 11 drove straight into the tipper truck which was travelling to Yapei from Tamale at about 1 pm on Wednesday, 18 September 2019 on the Yapei Bridge.

According to an eyewitness, Latif Iddi Atingpo, the Toyota Matrix was driving at top speed.

He said the driver of the truck and his assistant fled from their vehicle and left it in the middle of the road upon realising how fast the Matrix was approaching them.

He said the driver of the Toyota Matrix, who appeared to have lost control of the wheel, and was unable to apply the brakes, smashed into the tipper truck.

Fire instantaneously engulfed the two vehicles incinerating all the four persons in the Toyota Matrix along with the car itself even before personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) could arrive to douse the blaze.

“Four people were in the Toyota Matrix and they all lost their lives. They were burnt to ashes,” the witness narrated.

He said the traumatised driver of the truck and his assistant collapsed out of shock after escaping death by a hair’s breadth. They were later revived by passersby who poured loads water on them.

He said police officers have also been dispatched to the scene.
