A family of five crossed over successfully from 2021 into the new year but got crashed to death while returning from the 31st all-night service in another town.
The heartbreaking incident reportedly occurred at Assin Anyinabrem in the Assin South District of the Central Region.
According to Starfm.com.gh, the family which had five children with ages ranging from one to 18 was travelling in a saloon car with registration number WR-38-14.
They were driving from the Kumasi direction to Cape Coast but upon reaching a section of the outskirt of Assin Anyinabrim, the driver lost control and collided head-on with a DAF articulator truck with registration number GN-9828-20, the news portal reports.
The truck was reportedly being driven by one Yakubu Abass, a 43-year-old man with his mate on board when the unfortunate crash occurred.
The injured were rushed to the St.Francis Xavier Hospital at Assin Fosu for treatment but six of them were pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
It is reported that only one of the children in the family survived but is currently battling for his life at the hospital.
The remains of the deceased have been deposited at the St. Xavier Hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.
