The deceased have been identified as Leticia Ocran, 49; Olivia Ocran, 24; and Kwame Siawa, 15.
A police source, who confirmed the incident to Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Bawdie, said the accident occurred at 1620 hours on Saturday.
According to the source, Godwin Ocran reported to the Wassa Akropong Police that his mother, Leticia, younger sister, Olivia, and Kwame, a friend, had been knocked down by a Kia Rio taxi with registration number GT 6483-10.
