There's no curb, but the edge of the road there is very irregular and uneven with the asphalt being much higher than the sidewalk in many places. I'm not surprised that he lost control there. The accident reminds me of the man that tripped on the uneven shoulder in Sosua and fell under a cement truck there, too, I believe(?).not to say anything derogatory of the deceased , but the video clearly shows the Truck was at no fault whatsoever. this guy touched the curb with his front tire, then completely lost his balance, and FELL under the wheels, and did not even react or try to save himself .
Not sure what state a person has to be to completely lose it this way , especially someone as Physically FIT as a Kit Instructor ... bur one can certainly guess .
May he RIP Condolences to his Family and Friends ..
Thank goodness for this video or this Honest working Truck driver would possibly have to live with Guilt for something which is clearly not his fault at all .
Which side has been ignored?They did fix one side of the road in Cabarete . The south side of the road has nice sidewalks and curbs in most places. The south side has been ignored so far.
Two people falling under cement trucks because of bad surfaces is quite something.
The Man was a KITE Surfing Instructor though ..Anyone can come here and rent or buy a scooter. The balance and aspect ratio is different than a bike. Tires are also fatter and the scooter can easily become derailed going up a curb on an angle. Same for rocky or broken surfaces
So what does it matter if he was an instructor? He simple rode up sideways on broken pavement and lost his balance.This is very sad .. what a terrible way to go .

that pretty much cancels out the Out of Shape , no balance , weekend Warrior Scenario.
Something else was at Play here .. Dont want to speculate .. but how much effort would it have taken for him to Push off with his Left hand .
To literally fall into between the wheels .. that actually takes some doing
again, may he RIP .. very sorry this happened .
its such a terrible way to go .. those last 2 seconds .. Horrible .
Losing balance and then recovering from it is what his sport is all about ..So what does it matter if he was an instructor? He simple rode up sideways on broken pavement and lost his balance.
You using all caps doesn't change that he simply lost his balance on broken pavement
