  2. The man stayed at our resort and I can say that the information from Swedish press is not accurate. What is true is that the person died instantly after losing control of his bike in a corner that has many accidents. The rescue worker told me it has been over 20 deaths in that corner over the years. He died instantly and he left a grieving girlfriend and brother on the island. I have read the police report and there was no sign of intoxication. I have talked to the rescue center, seen the pictures of the accident and talked to the witnesses on the location and everything verifies that’s a single accident where the driver lost control in that corner, and the body flipped up on a electrical pole and killed him instantly.
