Fatal accident on M4, 2am Saturday

Just heard news that it was a friend of mine on the bike.

BBC News - Eastleigh biker dies in crash on M4 in Wiltshire

Rear ended by a drunk driver on an otherwise empty motorway.

He was only 28.

OMG . .I am so sorry mate.
No words can express the difficult time you, and mostly his family must be feeling.

Lets hope justice is served, but wont bring back a life.
I live near that area and I lost a dear friend on a motorbike accident a few years ago. Still think about that often. .

BBC website says the driver was a 25-year-old woman, who was arrested at the scene and has now been released on bail.

May I offer my condolences, Sp!ke.

I'm guessing that he was going pretty slowly (probably 55-60mph) given that he was on a little 125cc bike and on the motorway. Must have been a hell of a shunt.

Not exactly sure of the detail yet but the driver fled the scene and was apprehended later allegedly. Female driver...
