The Duampompo township in the Ejisu-Juaben Municipality has been thrown into mourning after a truck ran into a building killing two people instantly.
The Accra-bound truck ran into the residential building killing a woman, Ramatu Sali and her teenage son, Lateef Sali, on the spot.
A son of the deceased woman, Sumaila Sali, told Nhyira FM the incident occurred about 4: 20 a.m. on Monday when the family was asleep.
Residents had to dig through the rubble to recover bodies of the Junior High School student and his mother.
Relatives and sympathisers found it difficult to come to terms with how the vehicle which was carrying onions veered off the road and crashed into the house.
Ramatu Sali’s husband reportedly escaped the accident because he had gone to the Mosque to pray.
Meanwhile, the bodies of the two have been deposited at a private mortuary at Yakwei near Konongo.
