GoPro Footage Of Man’s Last Moments In Fatal Crash Used In Road Safety Video
By Valerie Chang, 14 Oct 2014
38-year-old David Holmes died in a fatal collision, and it was captured by his GoPro helmet camera.
He was reportedly going at about 97 miles per hour when the accident happened. The driver said in an investigation that he could not see Holmes’ incoming motorcycle when he was making the turn.
Holmes’ mother, Brenda Holmes, wanted the footage of his final moments to be released as part of a road safety campaign to remind others to be safe on the roads.
She told The Telegraph, “I want to be involved in this campaign because I feel something positive can come out of his loss. If we can prevent one accident; one family going through what we have been through then David would not have died in vain. I know he rode fast that day, he loved speed but he also loved life. This hasn’t been an easy thing to do but I just hope that somebody benefits from the warning; that people slow down and take time to look for bikes. I’m not a perfect driver, I’ve done silly things sometimes and I’ve been lucky to get away with them, David wasn’t lucky, the driver wasn’t lucky.”
