Three people have been crushed to death in a head-on-collision at Atebubu in the Atebubu-Amantin municipality of the Bono East Region.

A taxicab with registration number NR 112-12 which was said to have been heading from Amantin to Atebubu rammed into a Nissan Patrol vehicle with registration number AS 8687-19 moving directly opposite around a village called Asanteboa along the Amantin to Atebubu road.

Reports say the accident occurred when the driver of the taxicab attempted to swerve a pothole and in the process drove straight into the oncoming vehicle killing three on the spot.

Two others who survived, a woman and a six months baby sustained injuries and were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
