Banglamung –

A teenage motorbike rider and his passenger have sustained multiple injures after “popping a wheelie” before colliding with a sedan in the Banglamung district yesterday.

Emergency responders were notified of the accident yesterday afternoon (February 1st) on the Chaiyaphon Vithi Road in the Khao Maikaew sub-district.

They and The Pattaya News arrived at the scene to find the damaged motorbike and the sedan on the road. The two injured teenagers were found lying on the road nearby. Both were taken to a local hospital. Due to being minors, they were not identified.

CCTV footage nearby appears to show the teenage driver with his passenger “popping wheelies” before losing control and colliding with the sedan.

Police are continuing their investigation for further potential legal action.
