The report mentions that this tragic accident occured during queuing traffic so it's unlikely that the car was speeding....but let's not forget that some poor young lad had lost his life.

My thoughts are with his friends and family.

my husband knew this guy, and my brother-in - law was friends with him too and has been hit hard by this tragic loss. the information we have been given, bearing in mind there was lots of queuing traffic, due to another accident further up, is that the car did an illegal u turn to get out of the traffic and didnt look. this poor guy lost his life because of the driver. hence why he has been arrested. his family and friends are greiving, and the last thing they want to see is comments speculating that he was speeding in queuing traffic. R.I.P Josh. I know you will be missed. please watch over your biker friends and keep them safe xxx
