Three workers of the Twifo Oil Palm Plantation (TOPP) and a motor rider have been confirmed dead after their vehicle and a motorbike got involved in an accident in the early hours of Thursday at Twifo Praso.

Fourteen others, three of whom are in critical condition, sustained various degrees of injuries and are receiving treatment at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital (CCTH) where they were referred to.
