Five persons out of that group have been reported dead, including the wife and daughter of their head pastor. The head pastor who sustained serious injuries has been rushed to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.
Among the deceased was a young man who was being trained to become a pastor. Several of the passengers have been seriously injured with some having their legs amputated.
