I am sorry to hear the content of the story, this young man and his family need some justice, however I am also concerned at the use of English grammar in the piece. How can we expect our young people to excel in grammar when a professional journalist has such difficulty!
Has is singular and arrests is plural so it should be either
There has yet to be an arrest
Or
There have yet to be any arrests

She's just pointing out that somebody who earns their living this way should know basic grammar. She's right.

Tragic circumstances. I noticed the cause of death was head injuries in a relatively low speed limit zone - do they know if the lad was wearing a helmet? Major head injuries are usually less frequent in accidents like this.

Regardless its sad to go so young.

This death was very sad, i live near where the accident happened, unfortunately this man was not wearing the correct kit for riding a bike, and was travelling at speed.

If its not true and he was wearing a helmet someone needs to put the record straight, a story was going around that he posted on facebook that he was taking his bike out without a helmet, if that was the case then a sad and poor decision was made, if its not true set the record straight. I don't have facebook so I don't know either way. I remember being young and doing many stupid things including on motorbikes, there but for the grace of god ...
