Eduardo Tosts Obituary, Death -A motorcyclist who died after falling off his bike in Kidlington is thought to have lost control when he took a turn too quickly. After a pathologist examined his blood and urine, Eduardo de Souza Tosts, 31, of Orchard Road, Botley, was found to be over the drink-drive limit.
Despite owning a Kawasaki ZR900, he lacked a motorcycle license. Although he was not insured, the bike was.
On Wednesday, an inquest in Brazil into Tyler’s death revealed that Mr Tosts was riding a black Kawasaki on the A4620 Freeze Way near the Loch Farm roundabout at its junction with the A44 at around 5.20pm on July 3.
According to police, Richard Harvey, who was driving with his daughter at the time, saw the bike “coming around the corner behind me.”
“I’m not sure how fast it was going, but it was incredibly fast,” he said in a statement read aloud by Assistant Coroner Gemma Brannigan.
The bike was initially in the outer lane of the dual carriageway. Before entering the inside lane and colliding with the crash barrier, the vehicle appeared to veer to the right. After ‘half a second,’ the bike flipped over, throwing the rider off. Mr Harvey stated that he slowed down and called 911. His daughter went to help another driver, a teacher, who had stopped.
Marcus Evans, an off-duty firefighter riding his motorcycle with his girlfriend, told police he hit Mr. Toasts at 55 mph. The fireman heard the ‘loud sound’ of the bike behind him. “I knew it was coming fast because of the sound the bike was making,” he explained.
“Based on the speed at which we were traveling, a motorcycle passed us in lane two at a speed I estimated to be around 100 mph.” When he caught the bike, he saw that the rider was seriously injured. Another driver, a teacher, began CPR while firefighters worked to clear Mr. Tostes’ airway.
The rider was pronounced dead at the roadside after paramedics arrived and took over the ineffective resuscitation efforts.
According to the autopsy, Mr. Tosts had multiple internal injuries and was slightly over the legal drink-driving limit based on blood and urine tests. Ms Brannigan, who recorded a road traffic death finding, said, “I don’t know what Mr Toastes’ personal tolerance to alcohol was.” “I have no idea what happened on the road or why he felt compelled to react.”
“As a result, I am unable to say unequivocally that alcohol was a factor in this incident.” He offered his condolences to Mr. Tosts’ family, who conducted the investigation with the help of an interpreter.
