Sri Racha —
In Sri Racha, a male foreigner reportedly crashed his motorcycle into a Thai woman, seriously injuring her, and has yet to take responsibility, according to the woman’s boyfriend.
CCTV footage from Paradise Hill 1 Village showed Ms. Kotchakon Khetkhunthod riding her green and blue Honda motorcycle to a convenience store when Mr. Thomas V., a foreigner of unknown nationality, who appeared to lose consciousness while riding a motorbike, veered off his lane and collided with Ms. Kotchakon’ vehicle.
Ms. Kotchakon, aged 32, suffered several serious injuries including a broken arm, severed tendons, and torn muscles. Both parties including Mr. Thomas, who was also injured, were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Mr. Songklot Himachai, Ms. Kotchakon’s boyfriend, told The Pattaya News that his girlfriend had left their house around 8 PM on April 17th to buy groceries when he received a report of the accident.
He rushed to the scene and found Ms. Kotchakon seriously injured. He then reported the incident to the Nong Prue Police Station and submitted evidence for further investigation at a local hospital.
However, Mr. Thomas, aged 48, had somehow reportedly disappeared after the incident.
Mr. Songklot learned from local residents in the area that Mr. Thomas had a history of regularly drinking alcohol and causing multiple accidents in the past. He urged the foreigner to come forward and take responsibility, including financial, for injuring his girlfriend.
