Ten victims, including two sets of female twins who perished in the Antado motor accident that claimed 15 lives on Monday have been identified by relatives at the Central Regional Teaching Hospital Morgue.
As at 11:30hrs on Tuesday morning, when the Ghana News Agency (GNA) left the Morgue, the bodies made up of six females and four males had been identified as Paul Quarshie, a resident of Takoradi, Elizabeth Baidoo, 19, Suraj Awal a-30-year-old resident of Akim Oda and Charlotte Boham.
The rest are, Patricia and Patrina Asankomah-Simon, 22 -year-old twins, Mary Andoh Senior and Mary Andoh Junior, another set of twins aged 50 , Peter Ackon, 30, and Charles Adzewooda, 20 years, resident of Elmina.
Grieving bereaved families who had besieged the morgue to identify family members said they were devastated by the loss of their relatives.
Administrator of the Hospital, Mr Yaw Adjei Frimpong told the GNA that police was yet to present the coroner’s report to enable the pathologist perform a post-mortem before the bodies would be released to their respective families for burial.
Meanwhile, Master Kennedy Buadu, the 17- year-old sole survivor of the accident who sustained severe head injury and fracture of the left arm has been transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi for further treatment.
Master Buadu, a final year student of Golden Gate Senior High School in Shama in the Western Region had been working as a mate to the driver of the Mercedes Sprinter mini bus on vacations, his relatives revealed.
The accident occurred when the driver of the articulated truck from Takoradi heading towards Accra burst a tyre, lost control and slammed into the Mercedes Sprinter mini bus which was travelling in the opposite direction but had parked to avoid a collision on seeing the truck.
Two occupants of a Toyota Hilux pick-up which was behind the bus escaped unhurt.
