A motorcyclist who passed away following a tragic crash at the weekend has been named locally as teenager Kieran Reeves.
Kieran, who died after a collision between his motorbike and a taxi, is thought to have worked at Rampworx skatepark in Aintree.
Colleagues from the centre have joined friends and strangers in paying tribute to him following the crash on Sunday morning.
Police this morning confirmed that Mr Reeves’ next-of-kin had been informed.
Bouquets of flowers, candles and touching messages now cover a street sign on Allport Road, Bromborough, near to where the collision took place.
Messages include “Rest in peace Kieran, you’ll always be in our hearts and will never be forgotten”, “Sleep tight” and another message, seemingly from Bromborough Methodist Church, that offered support and said: “Remembering a young man, we do not know your name, we do not know your family or friends but we believe God knows each of you by name”.
Rampworx has also posted its own tribute to Kieran. On the company’s Facebook page this morning a heartfelt message said: “RIP Kieran Reeves, sad day for us to lose one of our local riders. Our respects out to him and his close ones.”
That post already has 142 ‘likes’ as those associated with the skatepark join those offering their condolences to Kieran’s friends and families.
Kieran, believed to be from Wirral, was pronounced dead after being rushed to hospital following the collision at the junction of Allport Road and Bridle Road. The incident took place at around 5am on Sunday and a police investigation has been launched.
The driver of the private hire taxi that was involved in the collision was left shaken but uninjured and is said to be co-operating fully with the police.
Anyone who witnessed the collision can call police on 0151 777 5722 or 5717.
