I hadn't heard of him but this guy had some talent based on his palmares.
Sorry to read this - it sucks.

Tragic for his family, to die so young.

I did not know him either. At least he died doing what he loved.

Sounds like big liver laceration. Seems the doctors were saying it was just bad luck, he crashed in an awkward way and got unlucky with his injuries. Ran into a concrete bridge over a ditch? I'm not sure what they mean by bridge. Just a little tiny bridge for a driveway over a roadside ditch?
