The two, Kofi Ankomah, 20, a driver’s mate and one Ama, believed to be in her mid-40s’ died on the spot.
The injured were rushed to the Juaso District Hospital where they were treated for cuts and bruises.
The condition of the driver of the Hyundai Grace bus, which crashed with a Mercedes Benz Sprinter bus, is said to be critical and had been referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).
