Unhappy Motorcycle racer Simon Andrews dies after North West 200 crash

Andrews was airlifted to a hospital in Northern Ireland in critical condition after suffering a serious crash while competing in the North West 200 on Saturday, May 17, 2014.

Andrews came off his bike and collided with a section of raised concrete pavement while curbing at high speed in Portrush, County Antrim.

After receiving immediate medical intervention from the race doctors and medics, Andrews was airlifted to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast in a critical condition after suffering the high-speed accident on the approach to Metropole corner. Andrews was competing in the second Superstock race of the event aboard his BMW.

A statement was released on Sunday night by race organizers:
Quote:
Simon Andrews' family are at his bedside in the Intensive Care unit of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, where he remains in a critical condition following his crash in the Superstock race at yesterday's Vauxhall International North West 200.
He died in the hospital. He was 29 years old.

Andrews' motorcycle racing resume included British Supersport, British Superbike, World Superbike, and three Isle of Man TT races.
