“Juan Chun, a fifty-four-year-old teacher was driving his motorbike somewhere around Big Falls Village, approaching the bridge, when a driver, George Ortega was driving a pickup in the opposite direction. It would appear that Ortega lost control of the pickup, fatally hitting Mister Chun who was hit somewhere off the road into some nearby bushes. He died on the spot.”
