Pattaya —

  A 24-year-old female driver collided with a 28-year-old male motorbike rider in Pattaya who died immediately at the scene. 

At 5.40 a.m. today, May 28th, Pol. Lt. Anand Mahakitasavakul from the Pattaya Police Station responded to a fatal car accident on Pattaya Third Rd.


Police found a black Fortuner with a demolished front and a 24-year-old female driver, Chananan Waewsawat, who was reportedly shocked by what had happened. Five meters from the car, police found a red Honda Scoopy and the male body of the rider, Thirawut Monthong, 28, who sustained multiple serious injuries and died at the accident scene. The woman reportedly refused to give police testimony and avoided questions from local reporters. 

Peeraphon Inrongpol, a 28-year-old convenience store worker who witnessed the accident, told a local reporter that the woman was allegedly driving at high speed on Pattaya Third Road and ran a red light before colliding with the victim. The woman also dragged the victim for 5-6 meters, Peeraphon said. 

Initially, Pattaya police would review CCTV footage to file possible charges against Chananan and transferred the victim’s body to the Bang Lamung Hospital for a preliminary autopsy.
