Eight mourners have died at Asiowkor in the Upper West Akyem District of the Eastern Region.
Sixty-three others who have been injured are receiving care at the Asamankese Government Hospital.
Three have been referred to the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua.
Information gathered indicates that the seven deceased were among some 71 persons who were in a bucket of a Kia Rhino vehicle in a convoy conveying a dead body from Asamankese Government Hospital to Esiokor for funeral rites.
The body of the deceased was in an ambulance followed by the Kia Rhino, whose bucket carried the mourners, numbering 61.
Eyewitnesses say the driver of the Kia Rhino lost control of the wheel, causing the vehicle to overturn resulting in the deadly crush.
The deceased are at the Asamankese morgue while the injured are receiving care at the same health facility.
