NORFOLK, England — A mother has allowed the release of a video showing her son’s final moments.
The motorcyclist David Holmes, was killed when a car crossed into his path on the A47 in Norfolk. He died instantly.
David, 38, was wearing a helmet camera when he plowed into a turning car at 97 mph. The speed limit on that stretch of road is 60 mph.
Holmes’ mother, Brenda, is also seen in the video, which was released on YouTube this week. In her on-camera interview, she begs not only motorcyclists, but drivers to be more attentive on the roads.
“This isn’t an easy thing to do but I just hope that somebody benefits from it,” Brenda said. “That motorists slow down and look before they turn into junctions.”
His mother acknowledged that she realizes her son was traveling at a high rate of speed the day of the accident.
According to the London Daily Mirror, the driver of the car received 12 months of community service and an 18-month driving ban after pleading guilty.
