    Footage of motorbike accident released

    Footage of motorbike accident released

    A bereaved family has released footage of the moments leading to one of their loved ones being tragically killed in a motorbike accident.

    David Holmes, 38, was travelling at 97mph when he hit a car on the A47 in Norfolk in June 2013.

    He had a head-cam attached to his helmet at the time, so the incident was captured on tape. Now his family and Norfolk Police have released the footage in a bid to highlight the dangers of motorbikes.

    Rethink behaviour

    It is hoped the footage will encourage motorcyclists and drivers alike to rethink their behaviour on the road.

    While it is a move that could prove controversial, both the force and Brenda Holmes, his mother, believe it is a necessary one as it could help prevent another family going through the same heartache.

    Mr Holmes, an Anglian Water worker who lived in Sprowston, had been making his way from King’s Lynn towards Norwich when the fatal collision took place at a crossroads near the village of Honingham.

    Benjamin Austin, 29, the driver of the car he collided with, admitted not seeing him or the other car travelling behind. He pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving and was sentenced at Norwich Magistrates’ Court earlier this year, where he was spared jail time but received a community punishment.

    Junctions are one of the most common places where motorbike crashes occur.
