One corner dance claims two lives at Ntotroso

By PrimeNewsGhana

Two adolescents who were on a motorbike dancing to the popular "one corner" tune have met their untimely death at Ntotroso, a mining town in the Asutifi North District of Brong-Ahafo Region.

The accident occurred around 12:00 midnight on Tuesday, October 17, when their motorbike collided with another person who was skidding off the road and crashed into a structure.

The bodies of Kwabena Fante, 17 and Nyarko Abronoma, 15, have since been deposited at the St. Elizabeth Catholic Hospital mortuary at Hwidiem in the Asutifi South District whilst Collins Krukyi, also aged 17, is in a critical condition at the same hospital.

The trio are reported to have gone on a drinking spree and the two died on the spot because none of them was wearing a crash helmet.

An eye witness told the GNA on condition of anonymity that the motor rider was speeding and because the road was sharp-curved he lost control.

He added that the victims were vigorously displaying the one corner dance on the motorbike and failed to heed all warning to slow down and stop reckless display.
