    I wonder why they haven’t appealed for witnesses to Geoffrey Burns’s death to come forward.
    I don’t know anything of either, but I hope that someone comes forward with information that might help the families understand what caused the tragedies. RIP the both of them.
    Bermuda’s roads are dangerous, especially for motorcyclists. Everyone needs to slow down a bit.

    I don’t know what happened in either tragic situation. I do know that two promising young lives have been taken well before their time.

    However, in most cases of late night / early morning road accidents are caused by Drunk Driving or sleep deprivation. I hope it was the latter in both cases. The first scenario is so avoidable and unnecessary. People need to recognize what their limit is and stop regardless of what those around you are doing. Sneak off and leave the Bar rather than keep hitting ‘em back OR ask someone to pick you up/catch a cab. It’s so much better than affecting some many other people left behind to mourn your loss.

    I hope and pray these young men’s families find closure.

    Regarding the tragic accident which took the life of Geoffrey Burns, I live very close to the site of the accident and actually heard the bike and then a noise (didn’t sound like a crash so I was not aware of what I was hearing at the time). Once I found out what had happened I called the police to report that, although I had not witnessed the crash, I had heard the bike just before the crash happened and unknown to me at the time I had actually heard the crash too. The police woman took my name, address and telephone number and told me the investigating officer would call me. As of today, 10/10/10 I have still not received a phonecall. I realise I did not actually witness the crash but one would have thought any information would be of some use.
