    Animals don’t run across road at night (21:30), they stay put because of the vehicle lights.
    Speeding may have been the cause.
    Hope the donkey was not killed, I support animal rights.

    Habeeb while you support animal rights you are not a supporter of human rights, which is the right to ride on a safe road . You are not factual since you are not sure if the rider was speeding but still is alluding that the young man was and the cause of the accident and his his death.
    You showed no remorse for the loss of a precious human life so how can you support the rights of animals?
    You and have relatives,children and friends ! Get a grip.
