Moment ‘traumatised’ Kem Cetinay takes phone call by wrecked Mercedes G Wagon after shock crash that left biker dead


THIS is the moment “traumatised” Love Island star Kem Cetinay takes a call by his wrecked Mercedes G Wagon after a shocking crash that left a motorcyclist dead.

The 26-year-old reality TV personality was driving near Hornchurch when a biker is understood to have crashed into his Mercedes G-Wagon 4×4.

The male rider was hurled 20ft in the air by the force of the impact before landing straight on the tarmac, before tragically being declared dead at the scene.

Love Island star Kem is assisting police with their inquiries and his £123,000 G-Wagon could be seen at the crash site with its bumper hanging off.

Witnesses said Kem escaped unhurt but was “deeply shaken” after the accident which happened just yards from a restaurant he owns in Harold Wood, Romford.

The motorcyclist reportedly collided with Kem’s car after trying to overtake cars going up a hill while the star was coming down.

Eyewitnesses say Kem was “definitely not to blame” for the tragedy and he was not arrested.

One witness told The Sun: “I feel for him.  He watched someone die in front of his eyes.

“We all recognised him.  He was talking to someone on the phone saying that there had been a smash and that he was worried.

“He was completely in shock.”

He added: “He did nothing wrong.  There were about six witnesses and we all saw what happened.

“The biker had overtaken us all and ended up on the wrong side of the road when he smashed head-on  into  Kem’s car at about 60mph on a 30mph road.

“The driver of the motorbike flew about 20ft into the air before landing on the road.”

Kem’s motor was last night seen damaged at the scene, including its bumper.

Local Marcelo Torres, 48, said: ‘There are still motorcycle parts all over the road.

“They even got an air ambulance but it was too late.”

The horror crash happened just 800 yards from the presenter’s Romford bar Array, which he calls his “greatest achievement”.

Kem, who is worth £4.3million, and is signed as Primark’s first-ever menswear ambassador, lives close to the scene in a £1.5million Essex property.

The star is in shock from the ordeal and has been left “devastated” according to friends.

A statement released by Kem’s representative said: “Kem was this morning (Thursday)  involved in a road traffic accident close to his home in the Brentwood area at approximately 11.30am.

“Tragically, a motorcyclist died in the collision. Kem has been assisting the police and is being treated purely as a witness to the incident. 

“Kem will be making no further comment on this matter aside to offer his deepest condolences, prayers and sympathies to the motorcyclist’s family and friends.”
