Love Island’s Kem Cetinay ‘devastated as horror crash leaves motorcyclist dead’
Love Island's Kem Cetinay was reportedly involved in a fatal crash today, Thursday 4 August, which left a motorcyclist dead.
Kem, 26, was said to be driving his Mercedes G-Wagon in Romford, Essex, when he collided with a motorcyclist.
Paramedics fought to save the motorcyclist, but he is believed to have died in the accident, Mail Online reports.
A statement from the Metropolitan Police read: "Police were called at 11:32hrs on Thursday, 4 August to reports of a collision at Shepherds Hill, Romford.
"Police and London Ambulance Service [LAS] attended. At the scene a car had been in collision with a motorcycle."
It continued: "Despite the efforts of medics, the male motorcyclist [no further details] was sadly pronounced dead at the scene at 12:04.
"Enquiries are underway to notify next of kin.
"The driver of the car stopped at the scene and is assisting police with their enquiries. He was not arrested."
Kem's reps have since confirmed his involvement in the collision.
They told OK!: "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."
While Kem went unharmed, a source close to the reality TV star said he's "devastated" about the ordeal.
They told the Mail Online: "Kem is devastated about what's happened. He's a sensible driver; no one could have foreseen this tragic accident happening.
"There has been no wrongdoing on Kem's side, he's not at fault, and is being treated by police as a witness.
"He's still dealing with the shock alongside close friends and his family."
Kem shot to fame on Love Island in 2017, which he won alongside then-girlfriend Amber Davies.
Amber is currently making waves at the West End, while Kem has done a series of television stints, including on Celebrity MasterChef. He also part-owns a restaurant in Essex named Array.
