The one corner craze has continued to mar the lives of many enthused Ghanaians who have boldly joined in the erotic exercise.
Two teenagers: Kwabena Fante 18, and Nyarko Abronoma 15 met their untimely death when a motorbike they were riding crashed into a wall on Tuesday night at Kenyasi in the Asutifi North district.
Reports say that the youngsters were riding on a top speed whilst singing and performing the popular ‘One Corner’ song when the rider lost control whilst negotiating a curve.
The boys were riding oblivious of their high speed before they ran into a wall at a corner. The deceased were sent to the St. Elizabeth Hospital Mortuary at Hwidiem whilst the motor rider is in critical condition.
A revelation made by the Asutifi District Police Commander, DSP Mr. Teddy Damptey Brown was that one of the riders was taking motor riding lessons on that fateful night.
DSP Brown has advised motorists to value their lives and adhere to safety precautions when riding motorbikes, adding that none of the teenagers who were involved in the accident were wearing a safety helmet.
