For those living in Europe(Sweden?), did they ever catch Ghostrider? There were stories that he died, but anyone know the real truth?

Apparently, he has never been caught, but i'm not sure. There were a few other riders in Europe who were copycats, but not sure if those guys were caught either. There was another guy named Turborider who apparently died in a crash supposedly, but i think he was German(?). Just some crazy speeds.

I don't know about him, but there was one of those where I live who a couple of months ago did a 25 minute stretch in less than 10 minutes.
The idiot did it in rush hour traffic with the sunset right in his eyes, not realizing there is some major reconstructions going on at the freeway.
I saw the he seems to have been inspired by this Ghost Rider when I checked the article in the local newspaper.
I did a little more research and found his real name. It seems he is a real low life criminal and an idiot.
