Fatal Motorcycle Accident Claims Life of 27-year-old

Kemel Espat

A motorcycle enthusiast is dead following a road traffic accident just before midday today on La Loma Luz Boulevard in Santa Elena Town. Kemel Espat was on his motorcycle when he met the deadly crash. Another motorist on the road, Rubina Forte, spoke with our colleague Kent Pandy shortly after the deadly collision. Forte explains that Espat was driving his cycle under high speed and was overtaking when he realized there was a parked vehicle on the road. It was during his attempt to avoid that vehicle that he crashed into a concrete post. Here’s how she explains it:
