Community gathers at Brands Hatch to honor 19-year-old motorcyclist killed in tragic collision on M25

In memory of 19-year-old motorcyclist Andrina Everett, who was tragically killed in a collision on the M25 last month, family and friends gathered for a special event at Brands Hatch Race Circuit.

Andrina was riding her motorbike when she was involved in a crash with a car being pursued by police near the Dartford Crossing. Despite the efforts of paramedics and authorities, she passed away at the scene.

To honor Andrina’s love for motorbikes and riding, a fundraising page was set up to help cover the costs of her funeral. The generosity of the community resulted in over £15,000 being raised.

Today, on May 21, a motorbike hearse with a glass sidecar and three cyclists completed two laps around the iconic race circuit in West Kingsdown. Andrina’s grandmother, Sue Hocking, shared with KentOnline that this was something Andrina had always wanted to do.

Joined by a convoy of motorbikes and loved ones, the group first gathered at the race track before making their way to Thames View Crematorium in Gravesend.

Andrina’s fiancée, William Critchell, described her as “the most loving person” and shared that she had a passion for riding her motorbike and feeling the freedom it brought her. Her sudden passing at the young age of 19 has left her family and friends devastated.

An independent investigation was launched by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) after the incident at junction 30 of the M25. Regional director Mel Palmer expressed their condolences to Andrina’s loved ones and stated the importance of a thorough investigation into the pursuit and actions of the involved officers.

The 18-year-old driver and passenger of the car, both from Essex, were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and have been released on bail until July 8. The tragic loss of Andrina serves as a reminder of the dangers on the roads and the importance of safe driving.
