A Thai man was killed when his big bike was rear-ended by a six-wheeler in the Ban Bueng district, Chonburi early this morning.
The crash occurred on September 6th on the Ban Bueng – Phan Thong Road in the Nong Bon Daeng sub-district.
Emergency responders reported finding one deceased person lying in a pool of blood on the road. He was later identified as Mr. Anuwat Pamornkul, a 25-year-old rider of a high-powered motorbike. The body was transferred to Ban Bueng Hospital. Mr. Anuwat’s crash-damaged motorbike was discovered on the road.
Police interviewed the driver of a white six-wheeler, only identified as Mr. Sirawut, who was involved in the crash. In a state of panic, he admitted that he crashed into the back of the victim’s motorbike while the victim was waiting to make a U-turn. The collision caused the deceased to be thrown under a passing vehicle, ultimately leading to his tragic demise.
Police were examining surveillance camera recordings of the crash scene to ascertain the exact sequence of the event.
It was unclear if Sirawut would face legal action and police did not immediately state if charges would be filed, only saying they needed to review the CCTV footage first.
