The face of a commercial motorcycle rider Prince Amoah, 31, has been disfigured by a serious injury sustained in a horrific crash at Akyem Takworase in the Denkyembour district in the Eastern region.

According reports, the crash happened around 1:00 pm on Wednesday near Akyem Takrowase police station when they were involved in the near-fatal crash with a vehicle.

Additionally, according to Sources, the rider in a serious condition was referred to Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and surgery was performed on his disfigured lower face but he’s unable to eat hence fed through nasogastric (NG) intubation.

Commercial motorbike operation is illegal in Ghana, however, it has become a booming business for thousands of youth in parts of the country.
