Ricky Coates from 'The Garage'...

I'm a couple of weeks behind the times here, but I've just found out that Ricky Coates died a few weeks ago. You'll know him if you watched 'The Garage' on the Discovery channel. He was the mechanic from Doncaster and only 27 years old when he died. Poor lad.

Anyone know what happened to him?

What a disaster, really sorry to hear that. I did wonder if it had been some sort of alcohol related incident, as every episode he was featured on he was either hungover or ready for a beer (and there aint nothing wrong with that I may add....).

27 is too young though, RIP poor sod.
