Pattaya —

Three people, including a foreign man, sustained serious injuries while one was slightly hurt when their motorbikes collided on Thepprasit Road at midnight on August 13th.

The incident occurred in front of Soi 8 in the Banglamung District, Chonburi. Two motorbikes, a Yamaha Fazzio and a Suzuki GSX-S 750, were found at the scene with significant damage.

Sawang Boriboon rescuers reported finding three severely injured individuals and one with non-serious injuries. They were rushed to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital for medical assistance.

The three people who suffered serious injuries were identified as a Thai man aged 40-50 years old, a Thai woman who pillion-rode him, and an unidentified Caucasian foreign man, about 35, of unknown nationality. The foreigner’s female passenger suffered slight injuries.

In an interview with an eyewitness who went only by his first name, Mr. Wayu, 30, he told The Pattaya News that he noticed the Thai man and the Thai woman slowly emerging from Soi 8 on their bike, attempting to cross the road. Then, the foreign man who was riding at a high speed in a straight path crashed into them, throwing everyone off their vehicles onto the road.

Mr. Wayu stated that he reported the accident to the rescuers after witnessing it. The foreign man drove a Suzuki GSX-S 750 big bike, which suffered extensive damage to its front.

The Pattaya police were examining surveillance camera recordings of the crash scene to find out the exact sequence of events and determine potential legal liability.
