As an ex motorcyclist myself I really hope this guy is ok and doesn't have any long term injuries. Strange coincidence that he should have this accident at the same time as the verdict from the coroner regarding Andrew Fitzgerald's accident on the same stetch of road. Hope someone in the highways department at RBK picks up on this and has a look to see if there are any similarities in the two accidents and whether anything can be done to prevent this happening in future.
