Passakorn’s friends and relatives who later arrived at the scene believe that there must be other vehicles involved that led to the accident. However, they did not give solid evidence around these beliefs. They did not explain why Passakorn had been out during a mandatory Covid-19 curfew overnight or if he had a permit to do so.

Police are continuing their investigation to find the exact cause of the accident.
