A YOUNG man who tragically died after the motorbike he was riding collided with a tree is to be laid to rest this week.
Daniel Baird, 20, of Bingham Way, was found with serious head injuries on the walkway running from the old Big W car park at the Milton Link to The Jewel, on May 7.
He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival. Police have appealed for information about the crash.
Mr Baird will be laid to rest at Piershill Cemetery at approximately 11.30am on Friday, following a service at Richmond Craigmillar Parish Church at 10am.
The tragedy followed the death of Mr Baird’s friend, 19-year-old Jason Davidson, in October 2009 in a motorbike crash.
