Fatal motorbike accident

Sadly on the 6th, the first road death occurred on the Canarian roads, in Fuerteventura. 



A rider lost control of his bike on the FV-2 at km 34, at Tequital near Gran Tarajal. He collided so violently with the crash barrier that he was decapitated by it. 

 The dead man is 40-year-old Cuban, Patico Suárez, whose father works as a doctor in the Gran Tarajal medical centre. The victim also lived there and leaves two children.  According to eyewitnesses, the victim had not had the powerful motorbike for long and he may have lost control during a fast overtaking maneuver.
