Love Island's Kem Cetinay Involved In Shock Crash That Left Biker Dead

A representative for Kem told the Mail Online: "Kem was this morning involved in a road traffic accident close to his home in the Brentwood area at approximately 11.30am.

"Tragically, a motorcyclist died in the collision. Kem has been assisting the police and is being treated purely as a witness to the incident.

"Kem will be making no further comment on this matter aside to offer his deepest condolences, prayers and sympathies to the motorcyclist's family and friends."

One witness said they felt bad for the 'traumatised' reality TV star, who was unharmed in the incident that left the front of his Mercedes G-Wagon damaged.

"I feel for him. He watched someone die in front of his eyes," they told The Sun. "The driver of the motorbike flew about 20ft into the air before landing on the road."

Another witness explained that Kem was visibly upset at the scene, which took place close to the restaurant he opened last July.

They told the Mail Online: "Kem was clearly upset and distraught by what happened. He was pacing up and down. He was on the phone and talking to two women at the side of the road. He seemed to be in shock."

Another source elaborated to the news outlet that the reality star is being treated as a witness, stressing there was 'no wrongdoing' on his part.
