    @SteveC (6): I think you can, as he didn’t die in the accident, but died as a result of the injuries he sustained. And yes, it probably is insensitive to nit pick about grammar at this point.

    I know it was from injuries. But still, passed away is something I’d associate with someone dying of old age or from a long illness.

    @SteveC (8): The term “passing away” is used to nullify the explicit aspect of someone dying, it’s much more calming to hear someone passing away rather than “dying after injuries caused in a motorbike accident”. Poor Lucker.
