According to reports, at approximately 22:10 hrs, Murray was proceeding at a fast rate on the Public Road when he lost control of his motorcycle and collided with the front of the truck GNN 9131 that was parked on the same side of the road.
As a result of the collision, he sustained severe injuries to his head and other parts of his body. Murray was rushed to the Skeldon Hospital in an unconscious state and pronounced dead on arrival.
His brother Charles France, 35, was still in a state of disbelief when the News Room visited.
