    Very sad! But what about the 80-year-old pedestrian? Does he leave someone behind, devastated and mourning? How often are we overtaken by “children” on nearly flying motorbikes on this road. It was an accident waiting to happen.
    Our thoughts are with ALL families affected.

      Hello Marina,
      I just wanted to reply to your thoughtful message. The 80 year old man was my grandfather. We are heart broken and devastated. He was our champion and we are still in disbelief to know that this tragic accident occurred and that he was so suddenly taken away from us. My grandfather was an innocent bystander. He was on the footpath walking to his nephew at the time. He wasn’t walking across the road. He wasn’t in his car. He was stationary, having a conversation. I will never forgive the adolescent riding thst motorbike. Careless. Reckless. Irresponsible. I could say much harsher things but in respect to the deceased and their families, I’ll refrain.

      May my Pappou rest in peace.
