Hello everyone,

it's been a long time since my last visit here.

I've got a sentence that is a part of an accident description from an Irish document. The whole sentence is as follows:

The Third Party was going in one direction and insured was going in opposite direction and insured veered into Third Party lane and Third Party had to swerve and came of bike.

Do you have any idea what does the bolded "came of bike" phrase mean?

Thanks in advance.

In my opinion, it means "fell off the bike"

It probably was "came off the bike" and marmara34 is right.
