My close friend Ahmed was involved in a bike accident yesterday night.

R.I.P. my good friend, going to miss a lot brother.

Please don't ride if u feel tired or haven't slept enough, this could cost you your life.

First, thank u all for your condolences.

The accident happened at 2:30 at night while he was returning back home from other friend house.

There is a new flyover bridge being constructed on the main long highway and they made a very tight zigzag in the middle of the road to facilitate the construction of such a bridge.

Friends whom arrived at the scene of the accident after it happened shortly, said that the area before the road diversion was dark as no post lights or any visible warning signs was on, so it was believed that Ahmed being tired didn't notice that so he hit straight the barriers at the beginning of the zigzag and was thrown off the motorcycle to hit more concrete barriers ahead.

Ahmed was working two long shifts daily for 5 days and barely sleeps enough, that's why i believe tiredness is the main reason for this accident as even if he was speeding he could've braked hard enough before the place of the diversion. One of my friends told us that Ahmed told him that his eye site wasn't that perfect at night.

i only had 3or4 drinks so they havent played a major role on my tiredeness..the lack of sleep was the more contributing factor in my tiredness..i should have went straight to sleep after 14hrs work and not for drinks..i was 17hrs without sleep when i rode my bike back home after i met my freinds
