Sadly learnt yesterday that Ruth (Slan) was involved in an accident which she was pronounced dead on scene. This happened a few days ago go and the police are still investigating after some new information has come to light I will give more detail a a bit later.
Further Details are hidden within Summary
Please remember her Family may view this page so keep the discussion of events ‘light’ .
From Information i have been given .
Originally only the car driver was under investigation.
And early reports said it looked like target fixation, and she clipped a central reservation before coming off and sliding into the oncoming car as the Mercedes didn’t brake or try to evade even after it had pulled Ruth under the wheels and pulled her down the road a good way. The car was wrecked as the bike hit it, so the police are trying to find out if the car was trying to get away or if the driver just froze.
However further investigation has resulted in a serious development, two of the three other bikers at the scene have been arrested. The markings on the road showing Ruth’s path don’t show someone running wide and going off, they show someone on the right line suddenly spearing off. The police tracked their route and found a petrol station they stopped at, and the CCTV revealed the two arrested had cameras on their helmet/bike, which they removed and hid after the crash. The police have recovered these cameras, and one of the two came clean, the other is saying no comment. We don’t know what they show,but apparently they show some sort of maneuver that went wrong, and Ruth following behind had nowhere to go so slammed on the brakes, and went off and into the car.
