A Kenyan family in the United States of America is devastated after their 41-year-old son died after a motorcycle he was travelling in hit a curb.

According to Mwakilishi, Antony Karanja died after he lost control of a 2016 BMW S1000 bike that he had borrowed from a friend in Kent, Washington.

The outlet stated that Karanja had taken the motorcycle for a “spin outside a church parking lot” to take a few photographs but lost control.

Ed Troyer, sheriff department’s spokesman, stated that he hit a curb and was thrown into a fence which struck his head.

He reportedly regained consciousness after the accident but later succumbed to his injuries.
