NORFOLK, England — Motorcyclist David Holmes was wearing a helmet camera when he plowed into a turning car at 97 m.p.h. in Norfolk, England.
The 38-year-old was killed instantly, but the video was recovered intact. And now that video has been released by Holmes’ family in an effort to raise awareness.
Holmes mother, Brenda Holmes, is also seen in the video, which was released on YouTube this week and can be seen above. In her on-camera interview, she begs not only motorcyclists, but drivers to be more attentive on the roads.
WARNING: While the video below does not contain graphic images, it includes content some may find disturbing.
“I know (David) rode fast that day, he loved speed but he also loved life,” Brenda says in the video. “I just hope that somebody benefits from the warning; that people slow down and take time to look for bikes.”
