They were those of Mr Albert Armah and son Albert Armah Junior and Christina Tawiah, a ll-year-old from Elubo in the Jomoro District of the Western Region and Mr Robert Mensah, from Sekondi, driver of the Ford Bus.

ASP Baffour said, the driver of the articulator, Abrahim Awelh who took to his heals after the accident later surrounded himself to the police and had been placed in police custody.
