These speeding vans need to be stopped and now. Enough is enough and they do not make light remarks about van drivers for nothing.

The van was not speeding at all. It was pulling out of a carpark.

My thoughts are with the family of the young man who so tragically died and with the driver, whose life may never be the same again.

I live just across the road from where the accident took place. I don't know what happened but I do know that people drive very fast going around that bend. It was bound to happen, it's very very sad.

Phoenix1011 - I'm so sorry for your loss.

My son was first at the scene after witnessing the crash. Your brother did not die alone or suffer in any way. People were with him, helping him and caring for him. As far as I'm aware everyone present gave statements to the police.

May his soul rest peacefully and watch over those that he left behind.
