The rescue workers attempted to resuscitate the man but failed due to his injuries. His body was transferred to a nearby hospital to await his family and relatives. Police also kept the victim’s property including a gold necklace, a driving license, a wallet, and a lot of amulets to return to his family.

Pol. Lt. Col. Ratchapol said the road was poorly lit, and it was raining at the time of the accident, so the victim may have slipped and lost control of his car, leading to his demise.
