Love Island’s Kem Cetinay ‘had negative breathalyser test’ at scene of fatal road collision

Former Love Island winner Kem Cetinay "had a negative breathalyser test" at the scene of the tragic crash he was involved in with a motorbike on Thursday.

According to The Mirror, Kem cooperated with police on all their inquiries in relation to the devastating incident, and took all of the required tests at the scene, including a breathalyser test – which detects if any alcohol is present in the blood. All tests are reported to have come back negative.

The driver of the motorbike was confirmed dead at the scene of the collision, despite paramedics' efforts to save them, after it collided with 26 year old Kem who was driving his Mercedes G-Wagon, in a head-on collision at 60mph.

It's believed that the motorcyclist "overtook and ended up on the wrong side of the road before the 60mph smash", which comes according to witnesses.

Kem, who shot to fame on the 2017 series of Love Island, was seen looking understandably distressed straight after the crash, as he paced up and down at the side of the road whilst on the phone.

A representative for a Kem, who was uninjured in the crash, released a statement confirming that he had been involved in the collision at around 11.30am on August 4.

It read: "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."

Kem is said to be "devastated" about the tragic incident, which happened around 700metres from his successful Array restaurant in Romford, Essex.

A source close to the star is reported to have told MailOnline: "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."

A spokesperson for Metropolitan Police confirmed on Thursday: "Police were called at 11:32hrs on Thursday, 4 August to reports of a collision at Romford.

"Police and London Ambulance Service [LAS] attended. At the scene a car had been in collision with a motorcycle.

"Despite the efforts of medics, the male motorcyclist 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.

"A crime scene and road closures remain in place."
