Tributes for crash victim

The family of a teenager - killed in a crash in the Thames Valley at the weekend - have released tributes to him.

Police were called just before 7pm on Sunday 29 August 2010 to reports a motorcyclist traveling along Thorney Leys Road in Witney, Oxfordshire, had come off his bike and landed in a hedgerow. The 18-year-old motorcyclist, from Witney, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed until around 10pm to allow investigators to examine the scene.


Mark was the best brother anyone could ever ask for. He truly was my best friend. No words can explain how much it hurts to lose such an amazing person, especially at such a young age. He lived life to the max and enjoyed every minute of it. He was and still is a huge part in all his friends and families lives. He put a smile on everyone’s face and made everyone laugh. I will always love my brother and will never ever stop thinking about him. He will never be forgotten by anyone. Love and missyou so much mark!
Love from your big sister Sarah
