The rescuers administered first aid to the victims and transported them to a nearby hospital.

Also found at the scene was a black Ford ranger parked on the road. The driver, Mr. Amnat Kuljang, 47, told local media that he was heading to Mueang Chonburi from Pattaya. He opened a turn signal to enter a gas station and noticed a motorbike darting at him from behind at high speed.

Mr. Amnat claimed he had already tried to avoid the motorbike by turning right, but the motorbike could not brake and rear-ended him before falling into a ditch.

The victims are receiving medical attention at a hospital. Police are investigating the incident scene and reviewing CCTV footage to determine the exact cause of the accident.
