A 26-year-old motorbike rider who has admitted to high-speed driving has sustained injuries after he plunged his motorbike into a ditch in Si Racha.

Emergency responders were notified of the accident yesterday (November 23rd) in the Bang Phra sub-district.

The first responders arrived at the scene to find the damaged motorbike in a four-meter deep ditch on the side of the road.

The driver, Mr. Chonnan Premsiri, 26, had sustained several injuries and could not walk on his own. Rescue workers managed to pull him up from the ditch with the assistance of a rope. He was taken to a local hospital for urgent medical aid.

Mr. Chonnan told first responders, “I was driving at high speed and I was not used to the road. Unfortunately, I lost control at a curve, sending myself flying into a ditch. I am hurt, but I am very lucky to be alive.”

Si Racha law enforcement declined to file any charges in the one-vehicle accident and Mr. Chonnan remained at a local hospital recovering as of press time.
