The second bike, a Honda Forza 250  also ran out of control, and when the driver fell to the ground, his head crashed into the roadside drain cover. He lost consciousness immediately, leaving five metres of blood on the road. The 43-year-old motorcyclist, surnamed Chan,  was rushed to Tseung Kwan O Hospital in unconscious state and was certified dead at 0:36 am today.
