Biker's grieving family search for answers after fatal Settle crash

North Yorkshire Police Accident

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 12:07am 22nd June 2018.

The family of a biker who died in a crash near Settle say they're desperate to know what happened.

Steven Browne was killed when his motorbike collided with a car two weeks ago, his funeral is being held today.

The crash happened at around 8.20pm on Tuesday 5th June on the B6480, Steven was on his way out of Settle having stopped for a cup of tea.

His green Triumph Tiger motorbike collided with a red Triumph Stag car, he suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Despite an appeal for witnesses by the police at the time, Steven's family say few have come forward so far.

Steven's brother in law Gary Miles said:

"Steven was the most loving, caring, loyal person you could ever meet, always joking and laughing. He always had all the correct gear when he went out on his bike, he was always careful, he was actually mocked a bit by the other bikers for how careful he was.

"We're all hearbroken, it's such a shock and it hasn't really sunk in yet. It's not knowing what happened that is the hard bit, we just want a picture of what happened and why it happened."

Anyone who has any information about the collision and hasn't come forward to the police yet is being urged to do so.

You can contact the police by calling 101, selecting option 2, and asking to speak to the Roads Policing Group.

Alternatively, you can email Andrew.Ingram@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk or Neale.Rees@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk

Witnesses are asked to quote the reference number 12180099829 when passing on information.

Steven's funeral is taking place today, and his family are inviting anyone who knew him to join them.

The procession will leave Colne at 1pm, arriving at Burnley Crematorium for a service at 1.40pm.

A gathering to celebrate Steven's life will then take place afterwards at Nelson Cricket Club.
