An unnamed witness told police that the victim was racing with another black pickup truck when he attempted to overtake the truck but failed and rammed into a wall. The other truck then sped away, leaving the deceased victim behind.

Witnesses at the scene reported smelling alcohol on the victim’s body, but this needed to be investigated further by police. Initially, Phan Thong police said they would review CCTV cameras around the scene to determine if the other driver caused the man to crash or not.
