They were said to be between the ages of 21 and 24.
The accident occurred on the Dawhenya-Aflao highway about 8pm on Tuesday.
Two others, the driver and the mate of the tipper truck, who were rushed to a clinic at Prampram and the Tema General Hospital, respectively, are said to be responding to treatment.
The saloon car, a VW Passat, with registration number ER 228-14 and carrying four male passengers, was heading towards the Central University, while the Benz tipper truck, with registration number GR 9697 X and loaded with sand, was heading towards Dawhenya from the Aflao direction.
