WOMAN FOUND GUILTY FOR DEATH OF TWO FRIENDS WHO WERE TWERKING IN CONVERITBLE WHEN SHE CRASHED

In a tragic series of events on a London night, what began as a carefree joyride among friends ended in profound sorrow, leaving a community grappling with loss.

On July 16 2022, Adele Ojokie Aidonojie, 23, took to the wheel of her convertible Mini Cooper, accompanied by friends Rida Boujetif, 24, Mary Macharia, 23, and Ben Sidibe.

Laughter filled the air, blending with the bashment music as they journeyed through the city. In the backseat, Rida and Mary shared a moment of camaraderie, captured on video as they were Twerking and laughing together.

Yet, amidst the revelry, tragedy struck when Aidonojie lost control of the vehicle, speeding at over twice the limit, at least 62mph in a 30mph zone in Battersea, south west London, on Latchmere Road, at 3.42am.

The car collided with an object, causing the roof to collapse, and Rida and Mary were thrown onto the street.

Their injuries proved fatal, leaving behind a profound sense of loss.

Mr Sidibe, wearing his seatbelt, survived with a broken arm. He informed the police that Jamaican music was playing, and he captured a video of the two other passengers 'twerking' in the back.

In the aftermath, confusion reigned as Aidonojie, overwhelmed with panic, pleaded with witnesses to avoid involving authorities and intially lying to the police that it was a hit and run.

Despite her attempts to downplay the severity, subsequent investigations revealed the reckless nature of her driving.

In court, Prosecutor Sally Mertens stated, "The defendant claims that she was not exceeding the legal limit for alcohol in her blood at the time of the collision."

Aidonojie welcomed consequences for her actions; the defendant admitted to driving carelessly but argued that her hand had been pulled, causing it to slip off the steering wheel.

She has been found guilty of causing the deaths of Ms. Boutjettif and Ms. Macharia due to dangerous driving.
